Software will treat the world 

WELT stands at the crossroad of the consumer
and the healthcare world. 

 

With teams comprised of clinicians (MDs, PharmD), ex-pharma executives (Novartis), and operators who spent time in the trenches developing and commercializing products that tackle unmet medical device industry veterans (Philips, Abbott, GE), we understand the complexities of healthcare needs.

In the other corner of our office, we have members who come from startups (PillPack/Amazon,  Pear Therapeutics), consumer electronics (Samsung, LG), and luxury brands (BMW). 

Together, we build products that meet not only unmet medical needs but also unmet consumer needs—envisioning a future in which software will treat the world.
