SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glow, a women’s health and fertility company, today announced its Series B fundraising of $17 million, led by Formation 8, with additional participation from Founder’s Fund and Andreessen Horowitz.
Glow is focused on providing women with more insight and information about their health. The company’s new round of funding will contribute to its goals of global expansion as well as expanding its operations and product suite to educate women about fertility at every stage of their lives - from trying not to conceive to considering pregnancy, to conception and postpartum.
“We’ve seen phenomenal momentum since launching in the summer of 2013, from announcing 25,000 pregnancies at our one year mark, to rolling out Glow First, Glow for Enterprise and Glow Nurture - but our ambitions are big,” said Mike Huang, CEO and co-founder of Glow. “To name a few, we’d like to double-down on the product, on our data and research, and on insurance.”
Glow’s total funding now equals nearly $23 million. Joe Lonsdale, founding partner of Formation 8, and Nellie Levchin, managing partner of HVF, will join Glow’s board of directors. “Glow’s focus on global markets and its strong technical team particularly resonate with Formation 8,” said Joe Lonsdale, partner at the firm. “Glow is in a unique position to be a contributor to women’s health worldwide.
