If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
Do not throw money at your solution. Take the time to learn your customer pain points and build a product to solve their pain.
What problem does your business solve?
“Navigating wellness options is frustrating, and Canadians are met with numerous barriers and friction points to access personalized wellness treatment. It is a time-consuming process leading to a lack of ease in accessing wellness treatment.
In our own research, 91% of our consumers have experienced barriers to accessing wellness treatment, and it took 13-28 days on average to find personalized wellness treatment, which is unacceptable.
Our solution offers to take the frustration out of being your best well Self by integrating real-world data from users with similar medical profiles, treatments, and outcomes, enabling precise matching with wellness providers and product recommendations. “
