News & Announcements Baltimore: b.well finds connections inside and outside of Baltimore

The connected health startup is participating in national programs, as well as becoming part of a growing community within the city at a new office at The Grid.

b. well Connected Health’s recent moves within the city have pointed at growth for the startup.

In December, we saw founder Kristen Valdes pitch to close out M-1 Ventures, a program run by a host of partners like Johns Hopkins, UMB, Plank Industries and Brown Advisory in the last quarter of 2017 to help health and fitness startups. The company picked up $25,000 as Valdes pitched the consumer-facing platform.

b.well is designed to provide a single place to store and share health records and family health history from a variety of sources, as well as data from connected devices. With the data, it can provide connections to programs and services. Along with being offered directly to consumers, Valdes said it can be offered to health plan members or employees of companies.

The company also recently relocated to The Grid at the University of Maryland BioPark, which opened in December within the Lion Brothers Building in Southwest Baltimore.

Those local moves come along with more visibility nationally for the company, Valdes said in a recent conversation.
