Obesity is the largest chronic disease in the US (>$100bn spent each year) and the traditional solution ("move more, eat less") only works long-term for ~10% of people. But obesity treatment is radically changing due to a new wave of medication options which are 2-3x more effective than previous options. In addition, only 10% of those using weight management services are men: all programs market to women, not tackling the stigma men feel around this. Fella's founders are Luke & Richie. We studied together at Cambridge University. Luke Richie Luke studied medicine and developed a patented AI approach to detecting cancer at a YC bio company, before moving to Microsoft Research.
