"The traction in this young and fast-growing market is increasing significantly and I am therefore thrilled that we were able to conclude our B-round capital increase and thereby secure our funding for the geographical and commercial expansion, as well as for the trust and commitment that our new investors are demonstrating” commented Peter Ohnemus, founder and CEO of dacadoo.
The dacadoo mobile health engagement solution enables individuals to track, manage and benchmark their health and wellbeing in an easy and fun way on their smartphones. dacadoo calculates a personal Health Score, a scientifically calculated number from 1 (low) to 1,000 (high). The score works as an indicator and moves up or down in real-time, depending on how body values, emotional wellbeing and activities (exercise, nutrition, stress and sleep) change. To help individuals remain engaged, motivation techniques from behavioral science and online games, social and collaborative features from social networks, and personalized feedback are applied. The award-winning company is working with strategic partners from the key industry segments to bring this solution to the global mobile health market.
