Huoleti is accelerating towards U.S. and European markets

With their passion and go-getting attitude, our member Huoleti experienced a rapid growth and announced significant partnerships during the first year. Now they are soaring to new heights with their plans to enter the U.S. and European markets at Vertical accelerator growth track. They also opened a digital crowdfunding campaign on the Invesdor platform.

We have been following Huoleti development with a great interest since 2016 when they took part in Kertomalla paranee challenge (organised together with HYKS Syöpäkeskus, Novartis, UPM, Helsinki Business Hub, Sitra and us). Being born to empower patients and their loved ones to cope with a severe illness or other life challenges, they are working with their hearts to make great things happen. Their digital platform and mobile app are enabling the user to create peer-to-peer support networks and request, offer and receive help easily. 

Huoleti’s journey so far is very impressive. Already in June 2017 Huoleti started a valuable cooperation with world’s largest cancer medication company Roche which brought Huoleti in distribution in all University and Central hospitals in Finland (21 hospitals, 5 clinics in each).  The commercial version of the application was launched at the beginning of 2018. In spring 2018, they have signed a contract with the medical company Pfizer to co-design a new concept to empower patients coping with chronic illnesses.

During the 8-month Vertical Growth Track program, Huoleti will focus on building a sustainable model for service discovery and user engagement in Finland. At the same time, Huoleti is preparing for entry in the U.S. and European markets. First US pilots negotiations ongoing with Cleveland Clinic, Jefferson University Hospital and Visiting Nurses Association and some others to be announced later.

Huoleti team is welcoming everyone to join them in continuing to create their success story by opening a digital crowdfunding campaign on the Invesdor platform. The funding round will help the company to expand its product development, accelerate sales in Finland and accelerate its growth in the U.S. – and we can’t wait to see where this journey will take them!
