Healthtech start-up XUND raises €6m – the one of the largest seed rounds to date in Austria

Vienna-based healthtech start-up XUND has raised EUR 6 million for its AI-powered API – the only one certified as a medical device in their field. The new funds will enable XUND to drive growth and increase its presence in Europe. The seed round, which is one of the largest ones in Austria to date, was co-led by MMC Ventures and MassMutual Ventures, which were joined by RoX Health (Roche), and LANA Ventures.

Founded in 2018, XUND wants to revolutionize tomorrow’s healthcare by delivering evidence-based solutions to patients and healthcare professionals to help them prevent, manage, and treat diseases. By leveraging AI, XUND can automatically analyze and process millions of medical publications to create the baseline for their solutions. Proven algorithms that combine symptoms, personal risk factors, and demographic data of the patient identify statistically and medically relevant causes for discomfort. The switch from reactive disease treatment to preventive care and efficient disease management benefits multiple parts of the healthcare ecosystem, including patients, insurers, healthcare providers, and pharma.

Having developed the only API certified as a medical device in their field (approved as class IIa), XUND has gained the trust of several prestigious clients, including Wiener Städtische Versicherung (Vienna Insurance Group) and Generali, enabling them to build their own digital ecosystem using XUND’s technology. 

XUND will use the new funds to push growth and advance its expansion beyond the DACH region, including new markets across Europe. As a medium-term objective, XUND plans to expand into the US, with entry preparations already underway by a submission to the FDA.

The new funding will also allow XUND to expand the product features along the patient journey and integrate additional promising use cases, with its best-in-class medical device offering a solid foundation for further expansion.

Tamás Petrovics, Co-Founder & CEO of XUND said:

“We’re thrilled that we managed to convince some of the most successful Health and MedTech investors from Europe and the US to join us on our mission to build the data-driven healthcare system of tomorrow. The investment will allow us to continue refining product-market fit, speed up growth, and further improve our operations. Our ambition is to eventually cover the entire patient lifecycle from prevention over diagnosis to treatment and monitoring, allowing XUND to become the central infrastructure provider for digital patient interactions across insurance, pharma, digital and in-person healthcare.”

Charlotte Barttelot, Investor at MMC Ventures said:

“With the rise of digitalised workflows in every aspect of healthcare, there is a huge opportunity for XUND’s certified API, enabling stakeholders of the healthcare ecosystem to build their own native symptom assessment and patient navigation solutions, without the regulatory burden of having to become medical device manufacturers themselves. We look forward to supporting Tamás and his team as they set out to improve the healthcare system.”

Ryan Collins, Managing Director at MassMutual Ventures said:

“XUND has positioned itself as a market leader with its best-in-class product and differentiated business model in a field that has tremendous growth potential. We’re excited to partner with XUND’s stellar and complementary team as they transform the future of healthcare.”

 Additional information on benefits

Benefits for patients: XUND is the first digital point of contact for health issues, helping patients to better understand their symptoms, get reliable assessments and take the right next steps. Their technology is available 24/7 and offers an automated solution that is certified as a class IIa medical device under MDR and is the only one of its kind on the European market to meet all quality and safety requirements.

Benefits for payers (insurances): Insurance companies can provide their policyholders with cutting-edge medical technology to detect and prevent diseases early on. Benefits include cost savings by avoiding unnecessary physician visits and navigating patients more effectively to the right point of care, i.e., the right patient, at the right time, in the right place. In addition, with patient-generated health data (PGHD), XUND enables complete data capture that starts at the very beginning of the patient journey long before a diagnosis is made. These PGHD are essential for the future development of a digital ecosystem and the enhancement of the existing insurance offering. Also, going digital means opening up new target groups. Insurance companies can engage their policyholders by helping them to access healthcare more easily through digital front doors.

Benefits for healthcare providers: XUND’s technology is an operating system for digitizing the patient journey and enables healthcare providers to increase the quality and efficiency of their patient care. By adding decision support capabilities to redirect ED visits and by channeling patient flows more efficiently, XUND takes a large part of primary care off their hands so they have more time for their patients. Healthcare providers can improve patient documentation and open up new possibilities for advanced capacity planning to reduce pressure on healthcare staff.

Benefits for pharma: Pharmaceutical companies can use XUND’s technology to support their patient groups in early detection and monitoring. By going digital, pharma companies can give patients entirely new ways to interact with them. Digital companions enriched with patient-generated health data can help improve adherence, compliance, and health outcomes.

Investors: XUND managed to convince high-stake investors that cover the use cases of pharma, digital health, hospital, and insurance to join them on their mission to build the healthcare system of tomorrow. The recently closed funding round is led by global investors MMC Ventures (UK) and MassMutual Ventures (USA) alongside RoX Health (Roche, Germany), and LANA Ventures (Austria). Investors Peak Pride, Tyrolean Business Angel, and Schütz Family Office, who have already supported XUND in the past, doubled down on their commitment to back the start-up.
