The Rock Weekly

“Like pea(r)s and carrots”

Digital therapeutics companies were on fire last week. Empower Therapeutics snagged a license to develop a DTx platform for chronic pain therapy, Akili shared plans to bring another ADHD DTx game treatment to market by way of a new licensing deal, Swing Therapeutics secured FDA breakthrough designation for its fibromyalgia platform, and two formularies announced intent to offer the prescription DTx solutions of Pear Therapeutics. Alongside the juicy news from Pear and friends, two Carrots also grew ripe in the garden of digital health. Unite Us snapped up the consumer data and analytics platform Carrot Health for its social determinants of health platform, and the ubiquitous Tiger Global decided to bite on fertility startup Carrot with a fresh $75M. Now we’re hungry.
