For the B2C, we will sell our products with a subscription model. The subscription includes a box containing 4 stripes for a home-made weekly urine test and free access to our mobile app. The price of the monthly subscription is 13.90$/month and it becomes less as the users purchase a longer subscription.
Second, we will sell our products for B2B. Companies can offer their employees to track themselves.

Market info

Market size

$ 57,000

Competition

More than 500M users worldwide are using mobile health apps, yet loyalty of these products is very low: 80% of the wellness app users remove their applications within 2 weeks.
Our competitors mainly belong two categories: trackers and online health tools
-Trackers (Fitbit, Garmin…). They track generally four parameters: sleep, exercise, steps and heart rate. But they do not cover at all anything to do with users’ eating habits and metabolism.

Startup traction

Loyal user base from early adopters +2,000 users on the waitlist
Early partnerships with relevant partners +30 yoga and pilates studios in Bay Area
Early feedback & buy-in from influencers +15 bloggers, +20 influencers
POC for 2 corporations
Interest from 4 corporates for corporate wellness.
