New experts, mock interviews, 28 pre-order sign-ups, public on social 📣
Welcome to our weekly update on Dromadis Health! 👋
As usual, comments and feedback are suuuuper welcome. Email us, comment on this post, or just reach out for a chat, we’re friendly people! 😁
We’re building Asparagus, the first device that measures your diet balance, effortlessly. It works by analyzing your urine, directly from your toilet bowl. 🚽
This week, in short
We brought on board two world experts in Nutrition, went through mock investment processes for EF and YC, went public on social (follow us!), and got 30 more people on Asparagus’ pre-order list! 👯♂️
Week #10 accomplishments
👩🏼🏫 Mock interview week!
On Monday morning we had our Super Check-In (Entrepreneur First’s mock investment process) and on Thursday we had our first mock YC interview with ex-YC-partner Holly Liu.
All in all, it was great to go through these practice rounds as we’re getting ready for the real ones. 💪
📈 28 people joined the pre-order list!
Our pre-order list is growing! Thank you to all the 28 people who signed up and answered 35 questions about why they were interested in getting an Asparagus. We’re building this for you! 💚
Here are two clear trends that are emerging with this group: they describe their diet as healthy, and are interested in improving their long-term health!
🥗 Meetings with Nutrition clinics
Before we start selling Asparagus directly to the end-consumer, we will build a solid distribution system.
Nutrition clinics are perfect for this. They are already more than familiar with the importance of eating balanced food. Also, their patients are actively trying to build healthier food habits. With Asparagus, patients can build accountability for the food they eat, and share their results with their nutritionist. Working together will allow us to maximize Asparagus’ value, and deploy the product quicker. ⚡
Next week is packed with meetings with Nutrition clinics. More on this soon.
📣 We’re public!
All our social pages are now set, and we’re officially running this company!
Follow us! 😄
And yes, I have a fancy new profile photo with a green border 😂.
📝 Filled up another application (new decks)
These applications never end 😂. But answering all these questions about Asparagus is a great exercise!
We applied to another program, P4 Precision Medicine, to give us access to support from regulators and the medical body.
Say hello to Dr. Garcia-Perez and Prof. Frost! 👋
Dr. Isabel Garcia-Perez is the world expert on scoring diet balance from urine. Her work on the topic was done by collecting urine samples from 1800+ participants and was recently published in Nature Food. She is a Lecturer in Precision & Systems Medicine at Imperial College London.
Prof. Frost is the head of Nutrition and Dietetics research at Imperial College London. He has 25+ years of experience as both a clinical dietician and a researcher.
We are proud to have both of them support us by joining our scientific advisory board. Here’s to a great collaboration! 🥂
