The future of autoimmune care

Over 50 million Americans are living with an autoimmune disease, and recent research suggests that number will continue to grow. But the way we treat these diseases is broken—diagnosis can take years, and there is often no simple positive test result. There are tremendous unmet needs and a likewise enormous opportunity to connect autoimmune disease patients with research-backed support. That’s why we are thrilled to share the news of our investment in WellTheory's $7.2M seed funding round, alongside Accel, BoxGroup, Lux Capital, and Scribble Ventures. WellTheory is a membership-based nutritional therapy and health coach-focused platform for patients with autoimmune disease. By routing patients into WellTheory's personalized therapeutic program, payers and self-insured employers can reduce expensive drug spend—and patients can regain greater control of their health. We’re honored to support founder Ellen Rudolph and the entire WellTheory team!
