Global Brain has invested in PREVENT Inc., a digital health startup company, through its KDDI Open Innovation Fund III (KOIF III).

PREVENT Inc. (“PREVENT”) – a digital health startup company from Nagoya University, provides “Mystar”, disease management programs through a mobile app. The aim of their service "Mystar" is to reduce the risk of ischemic disease by providing personalized lifestyle modification support programs for users who are under medical treatment for or have a medical history of lifestyle diseases. This program was developed based on medical evidence regarding effective prevention of ischemic stroke recurrence by lifestyle modification. This service has already adopted by about 100 health insurance associations in Japan.

GB decided to invest in PREVENT because of their evidence-based digital healthcare technology. We will fully support the company’s business growth, and we expect them to keep promoting innovation in the healthcare field by refining their services.
