Further information about JupiterDX:
- JupiterDX will receive $500,000 in pre-seed funding to help build and scale its product offering.
- JupiterDX is a member of MATTER, a leading healthcare startup “incubator and community nexus” based in Chicago.
- JupiterDX will launch a beta version of its app in early February.
- During their time at Northwestern University, JupiterDX participated in The Garage’s Residency program, Jumpstart, The Garage’s summer pre-accelerator program, and VentureCat 2022.
Landon Campbell, the General Manager of Drive Capital’s Chicago Office, shared the following about the JupiterDX team: “I originally met Alex and Mason while judging a pitch competition at The Garage for Jumpstart. I was immediately impressed with their passion; unique past experiences; and most importantly their vision to help patients have better ownership over their healthcare data and care. Alex and Mason have what it takes to build a platform that changes lives.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Drive as we continue to build and scale our product offering. Their deep expertise in healthcare and technology will be invaluable in our pursuit to improve the lives of our customers,” said Alex Bahram.
