Sydney health tech startup Human has raised $10.15 million in Seed funding.

The raise was led by Airtree Ventures, backed by Skip Capital, Kim Jackson’s family VC and her husband, Atlassian co-founder Scott Farquhar.

Human was co-founded by former Canva head of product Georgia Vidler and her colleague Kate Lambridis, who believe that people need an easier way to access medical information and research and that real-time health data that can help is currently being lost.

They want their startup to learn from doctors, researchers and patients which treatments work and will publish those findings on the platform for free to help doctors and patients create personalized treatment plans.

Vidler said more than half of the world’s population today lives with a chronic condition, causing unnecessary suffering.

“Patients and doctors alike are constantly looking for new options – but the sheer amount of medical information out there makes it nearly impossible for people to decipher what information is relevant, what is misinformation, which treatments work and which are safe. ” she said. .

“Kate and I saw an opportunity to bring our skills together in designing great products and teams, to capture the world’s best medical information and put it in the hands of patients and doctors everywhere, in a personalized and data-driven way. way.”

In the six months since they launched Human, the duo has hired 18 employees and focused on building out their beta product.

Lambridis said they are building it together with clinicians and scientists around the world who see the platform as a way to share their findings and research.

“We want to accelerate science and empower doctors and patients to make more data-driven decisions,” she said.

“With Human, we will consolidate and find gaps in existing medical research – and more importantly, conduct our own research with massive data sets from physicians and patients. Science is constantly evolving and we want to help make medical breakthroughs at a much faster pace.”

Skip Capital CEO Kim Jackson said Human has tremendous potential for impact.

“Healthcare is not known to have great user experiences — and product-centric thinking is what healthcare systems worldwide desperately need,” she said.

“That’s why we’re incredibly excited to support Georgia and Kate to combine their expertise in building simple and delicious products, with their ambition to democratize access to the best healthcare.”
