Steven Bartlett’s Flight Fund Invests $2.5m in ZOE to Improve the Health of Millions
Steven Bartlett’s Flight Fund has today announced it has signed a deal to invest in the personalised nutrition company ZOE, which in December secured $38 million via its Series B extension round. Created by the world’s top scientists, ZOE’s personalised nutrition programme is radically reimagining a fundamental human need – eating well for your own body – and is on a mission to improve the health of millions.
Available in the US & UK, ZOE is also backed by international investors Accomplice and Balderton Capital and Steven’s investment via his fund ‘Flight Fund’ brings the total invested to over $92 million. The funds will be used to scale ZOE’s operations and science to bring ZOE to millions of people globally.
Steven is already an accomplished investor in the health and wellness space with previous investments in Huel, The Healing Company, atai Life Sciences, Alto Neuroscience, AbCellera and more. As part of the investment and strategic partnership, ZOE will work directly with Steven and gain access to Flight Fund’s unmatched network, which is powered in part by Steven’s chart-topping podcast The Diary Of A CEO, and his innovative marketing company, Flight Story which provides the people, processes and technology to help accelerate the Fund’s portfolio.
ZOE’s personalised nutrition programme starts with comprehensive at-home tests that analyse blood sugar, blood fat responses and the gut microbiome. Combining these results with artificial intelligence and data from thousands of participants in their proprietary ZOE PREDICT studies, ZOE generates personalised scores for any food an individual eats. ZOE members then learn to build sustainable daily habits with in-app tools, lessons and expert nutrition support to help them eat the best foods for their bodies and their health goals.
On the announcement, Steven Bartlett, Founder of Flight Fund says: “Once in a while I come across a company that truly has the potential to move the world forward in a profound way. It takes a great team, with a bold vision and a well executed product roadmap to do so. That is exactly what I found in ZOE. It’s a company that represents the future – health science, driven by big data, that enables us to extend not just our life-span, but more importantly our health span. I’m deeply proud to be an investor and now an ambassador of a company that I truly believe will change the world by leading the nutrition-science revolution.”
George Hadjigeorgiou, President & Co-founder of ZOE adds: “We are unbelievably excited to be partnering with Steven. Since my co-founder, Professor Tim Spector was on The Diary of a CEO talking Steven through key ZOE principles, such as no calorie counting and the impact of gut health on wellbeing, we’ve had huge interest in ZOE and our personalised nutrition programme. From working with Steven and having him use the ZOE programme first-hand, we know he aligns with our mission to double-down on health science to help more people get control of their health and improve the health of millions.”
