Blood test startup Aware raises $15m seed round
Blood test health-check platform Aware has emerged from stealth with $15m seed financing in the coffers, as it looks to roll out its private beta to patients in Germany.
Aware is hoping to be a one-stop shop for patients to get a detailed snapshot of their current health condition, which is put together by analysing a sample of blood drawn at a lab.
Patients can get their results via an app within 24 hours, and then re-test every three to six months as part of a subscription. The idea is to nip diseases and chronic illness in the bud early by normalising regular testing.
Aware will roll out its private beta product to users in Berlin, and is targeting a broader release by the end of the year. After that, the startup wants to launch in the UK and other markets in Europe.
Eventually, the startup says it wants to build “Europe’s largest health database for personalised medicine”, with the goal to allow patients to proactively access care pathways tailored to their individual illnesses before they become serious.
The seed round was led by Switzerland’s multistage VC Lakestar alongside Berlin-based compatriots Cherry Ventures and June Fund. There was participation from Naren Shaam, founder and CEO of travel company Omio; Lucas von Cranach, CEO and founder of football media platform Onefootball; and Christian Reber, founder and CEO of presentation software startup Pitch. The round also featured healthtech TeleClinic founder Katharina Juenger and a number of other angels.
Success is no accident, it is hard work and perseverance. Congratulations to the entire team at Aware on your funding. I wish you all the best in this endeavour.Shishir Gupta, Founder and CEO, StartupLanes
