Healthy habits and wellness app actio has extended its seed round to over €10 million with a new investment from fellow Berlin-based firm Heal Capital, a healthtech VC. Back in December, the startup secured €8.5 million in funding from HV Capital and Cavalry Ventures. With actio’s app, users have access to coaches, live classes, training plans and a community of other aspiring self-optimisers. Classes vary from cardio fitness to ‘happiness journaling’, and each one is about 15 minutes on average — short enough to fit in almost any schedule. Founded in 2019 and then launched in December, the service is based on a specially developed VoIP call software that connects users with real coaches worldwide and brings them together in group calls. Instead of a push notification, participants receive a call before the course begins.
