At the start of each week we share a quick “best of” from the week that was with our Inner Circle members. In this week’s brief we talk about…

  • Spotlight: Pediatric Innovation
  • Reading List: On FamilyTech, LGBTQ Family Building & Menopause
  • Startup Spotlight: Phoebe & Yonicore

Last week Luna, a UK-based startup focused on teen health and wellbeing announced £600K in pre-seed funding to launch its app, and support young people aged 11-17 on their journey to adulthood. Luna’s goal is to demystify teen issues, that may be seen as embarrassing and can make teens feel alienated. Topics discussed include menstruation, body positivity, gender, sexuality, mental health, skin care, and more.

We wanted to take the news as an opportunity to have a closer look at pediatric innovation, which led us to discover KidsX, an accelerator and ecosystem for pediatric innovation “anchored by a consortium of children’s hospitals motivated to partner with early stage digital health companies.”
