About Us

Founded in 2018, Peppy is a leading B2B digital health startup on a mission to support underserved areas of healthcare through our tech-for-good mobile app.

We fill some of the biggest gaps in healthcare by providing expert-led, personalized support to people when they need it most. The areas we support include fertility, menopause, pregnancy, early parenthood, men’s health and women's health (with more to come!).

Peppy grew by 500%+ in 2021 to 140 employees today, landing more than 60 amazing clients (and counting!), including SAP, Santander and Capgemini.

After a busy 2021 which included securing a Series A led by Felix Capital (Peloton and Farfetch) and closing several distribution deals with the largest insurers in the world, Peppy now has its eyes on an even bigger 2022. We have huge growth plans to scale our existing product, launch new services, reach our Series B round and expand into the US.

The $9 TRILLION global healthcare market is open for disruption and Peppy is perfectly placed to capitalize on its global first-mover advantage in the newly created category of digital healthcare as an employee benefit.
