thrivaLaunched in 2016, Thriva is a digital health startup that recently closed a £1.5m seed funding round, which included support from investors such as Seedcamp and 500 Startups, as well as the founders of TransferWise and Zoopla.

They easily reached their funding goal by impressing investors with their rapid growth and their health tracking vision, putting health monitoring firmly in the hands of the people.

Thriva wants biochemical monitoring to become as normal and habitual as stepping onto weighing scales, and consequently improving people’s lives and proactively keeping tabs on what is happening inside their bodies.

There are 3 simple steps to using Thriva. Firstly, you order the kit you want. Second, you take the test (usually a finger-prick blood sample). Third, you send the test back as part of the initial order cost. Then you simply wait 48 hours for your results to appear on your personal online dashboard, along with comments and notes from a GP, as well as plenty of information on what the results mean and what can be done to improve them.

You can rest easy knowing that your blood is in good hands and you probably won’t be cloned, because Thriva uses the UK’s largest private pathology lab, The Doctors Laboratory, to process all blood tests. TDL is, of course, fully accredited, and its main client is the ThrivaNHS.

Prevention is better than cure, and with Thriva, you can keep your health on track and get a handle on potential issues before they become something, and with 3-monthly tests, you can watch how your body is responding to keep tabs on what is working.

We look forward to seeing if this HealthTech startup with good intentions, and now a £1.5m seed round, continues to grow with a continued healthy turnover over the coming months...
