Top Wellness startups to watch in 2024

In the last three years the wellbeing industry has grown by almost $2 trillion to support the pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that promote better physical and mental health. From pilates to healthy eating, nutrition and weight-loss, meditation and wellbeing within the workplace, wellness is more affordable and accessible than ever before. We’ve rounded up the ten start-ups we believe are set to take the industry by storm over the next twelve months.

Wellory

Wellory is focused on making nutrition coaching accessible to everyone. The app connects users with personal nutrition coaches who provide feedback and guidance on healthy eating habits.
Why we’re excited:
If you want to see a nutritionist or health coach on your own it can cost you anywhere from £100 to £500 for a one hour session. We’re big fans of Wellory because it is challenging diet culture and reinventing personal nutrition by making it accessible and affordable to all. Given one of the biggest causes of obesity is a lack of knowledge about what constitutes a well balanced diet, this high-growth start-up is about to have a big impact around the world!

Fastic

Fastic focuses on unlocking the benefits of intermittent fasting. The app, which has had over 30 million downloads, offers diet plans, calculators, recipes, courses, and educational and motivational content to help users achieve their weight loss goals.
Why we’re excited:
For anyone new to fasting, Fastic is a fantastic app to help you get started. Not only is it easy to use but it helps users develop healthy habits and educate them on how intermittent fasting can benefit their health. Fasting can be hard work but we love the app's fasting timer as it's a great way to stay on track (and remember when you started your fasting window). According to recent studies fasting can also have several health benefits including improved blood sugar and decreased inflammation making the app even more appealing.

We’re all for Opal and its mission to help individuals (including us) spend less time online and more time offline, in the real world.

Conceive

Conceive is the first scaleable community and expert network for women's health, starting with fertility. The app offers a cohort-based community, access to experts and 1:1 coaching to help women navigate and accelerate their healthcare journey, while getting results.
Why we’re excited:
We love that the app is run by coaches who have faced similar issues as its users and that it creates the ultimate support network for women looking to conceive. Plus the cohort-based approach to the app gives it an even more personal touch as users can support others by sharing advice and even offering a shoulder to lean on 24/7. Starting your fertility journey can be overwhelming and scary, especially if it doesn’t happen naturally or quickly. Conceive is a great way to relieve some of that pressure and make women feel less lonely or nervous on their journey.
