Skin cancer detection

Julien Méraud

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.

Weight management

Julien Méraud

Partner at Hexa Health

The obesity rate in the USA is currently 30%, and in France, it's 17% — both are double what they were 25 years ago. This surge has significant public health implications, such as a 50% increased risk of stroke (AVC) and a fourfold increase in diabetes. Obesity is a multifactorial issue, leading to a complex patient journey. Our vision is to create an AI-powered app that allows daily interactions with a trained care team, including doctors, dieticians, psychologists, and coaches.

Web3

Content3

Florent Quinti

Partner

With the rise of generative AI, content has more potential than ever to create huge value for audiences. Creators often rely on big platforms for publication, but they need to be more independent to break free of algorithms for their content to get the attention it deserves. To achieve this, they need a new set of tools.

TopiX

Florent Quinti

Partner

Today’s collaboration tools such as Slack and Notion work incredibly well in office settings but tend to be overly complex for teams working in the field or in hybrid environments that combine office and fieldwork.

How Hexa Does Early-Stage Go-To-Market

How Hexa Does Early-Stage Go-To-Market

Pre-PMF is the best part of building a startup when you are doing GTM. It's a time of unrestricted experimentation where failures are just part of the process. Unlike tech giants like Google, your early-stage startup won't be making headlines if something goes wrong, giving you the freedom to try, fail, and learn without much scrutiny.
