Manual secures major investment to help with product development and international expansion and its overall mission to become the global destination for men’s health

Product Banner 2.jFantastic news from Manual with the raise of a $30m Series A round. The company is setting its sight on becoming the go-to global platform for men’s health and wellbeing and will use this funding for product development and international expansion.

The investment bolsters Manual’s chief mission to remove the stigma surrounding how men approach their health and will be used to develop impactful products and solutions, building a vertically integrated healthcare and wellness platform for men. Providing everything from diagnostics to treatments to ongoing care. Manual will continue to expand across Europe, Asia and Latin America and, to support this growth, will be hiring more world-class talent across its product and expansion teams. 

Manual Founder - George Pallis.jGeorge Pallis, Founder and CEO of Manual, said: “We’ve been encouraged to see men of all ages increasingly turning to Manual to solve multiple health problems, with almost half of our customers seeking help for more than one issue. It’s clear that a health concern may have more than one cause, and we can provide customers with the ability to treat their health in a more holistic way...Changing the narrative on men’s health and their approach to wellbeing is incredibly important for us. We believe that through building a platform and community where men have easy access to medical support and health treatments, we can drive positive change for men not just in the UK, but all over the world.”

Manual’s international investors will bring their unique experience to the table, supporting the company in its mission to help more men worldwide. US-based Sonoma Brands, Europe-based Felix Capital and Cherry Ventures have deep-rooted experience in the branding and scaling of consumer businesses.

Antoine Nussenbaum, Co-Founder and Partner of Felix Capital, adds, “There is still much work to be done to remove the taboo when it comes to men looking after their wellbeing and talking openly about health concerns. But we’re starting to see a shift happen amongst consumers. Men of all ages are coming to Manual for help, showing the importance of an authentic brand, built on passion and community. Manual is challenging modern masculinity and we’re excited to continue to support them as they address this issue globally.”

Having already grown at such a fast pace in the last 12 months, we can’t wait to see where Manual goes from here, thanks to this investment.

We’ve written previously about some fab healthtech startups that are supporting women, so it’s good to feature a platform that’s supporting men too.
