Partner at Hexa Health

Insomnia is often treated with sleeping pills, despite CBT being more effective. However, CBT is costly, rarely covered by insurance, and has long wait times. SleepX aims to improve insomnia treatment for women in the USA with a personalized CBTi program. Women are disproportionately affected by sleep problems, requiring tailored treatments. Our approach combines AI and human guidance to customize therapy to each patient's needs, ensuring immediate and effective access.

OpenVanta

Ugo Vollmer

Partner

Most, if not all, companies will need to obtain SOC-2 or ISO27001 compliance, either due to mandatory requirements or customer demands. Achieving compliance is complex and typically requires extensive knowledge, prompting many to turn to solutions like Vanta, which provides access to knowledge and templates in a somewhat opaque manner. We are building OpenVanta, an open-source alternative that emphasizes transparency by making knowledge and templates accessible to everyone, thereby eliminating this intermediary tax.

Partner at Hexa Health

In France, there are over 100,000 new cases of skin cancer annually, leading to more than 3,000 deaths. Early detection is crucial; 90% of skin cancers are more treatable when identified early. However, the number of dermatologists has decreased by 20% compared to a decade ago. We want to address this gap with small, efficient care centers focused on mole testing, equipped with innovative whole-body imaging devices, and utilizing remote doctors for image analysis.
