Alan partners with athletes to improve healthcare access for all Europeans

Alan is partnering with Origins and Teampact Ventures

Alan, the one-stop health partner for the body and mind, is partnering with Origins, Blaise Matuidi's fund and Teampact Ventures to radically improve access to healthcare for all Europeans.

Both funds invested during the Series E as Alan had kept a special investment pocket for strategic investors.

By collaborating with funds with deep ties to the sports world, Alan hopes to improve the access to personal and holistic healthcare.

At Alan, we believe that top performing companies look like the world's best sports teams, and that being surrounded by the best athletes will help us transform health and well-being for everyone.

Origins & Alan

Origins is a VC fund created by Blaise Matuidi and supported by more than 50 top professional athletes with very large social media influence. Among them are footballers like Paulo Dybala, N'Golo Kante, Kingsley Coman, Olivier Giroud or Presnel Kimpembe, as well as other sportsmen such as Antoine Dupont, captain of the French rugby team.

Such athletes are the best positioned to raise awareness on the importance of access to preventive and personalized healthcare across geographies and generations.

Together, they represent a very strong community of 160 million followers on social networks, enough for Alan to bring awareness on the importance of access to physical and mental healthcare.

Several players are partnering with Alan to create content and share their advice on how to have the mindset of a high performer or how to always be at the top of your game. Among them are Blaise Matuidi, N’Golo Kanté, Miralem Pjanic and Kieran Gibbs.

Jean-Charles Samuelian-Werve, co-founder and CEO of Alan said:

“We're very excited that such accomplished athletes are using their voices to raise awareness on the importance of healthcare access and give our members the ability to get some unique content on excellence, nutrition, routines, and work-life integration.”

It is a shared mission between Alan, Blaise Matuidi, and Origins' athletes to bring access to the best health tools and information to our members, and we are delighted to partner with them to do so.

“We're proud to be investing in Alan latest round, to support them in building Europe's healthcare superapp. As athletes, when it comes to performance and well-being, we are hyper-aware of the importance of having access to top-notch and digital-first healthcare. Being able to join this strategic round for Alan and leverage our investors' influence is a huge milestone for Origins” shares Blaise Matuidi.
