Series 4. Episode 7:
Let’s talk about the business of wellness…
My guest today is Will Ahmed, Co-Founder and CEO of WHOOP, a ground-breaking wearable health tracker designed to measure sleep, recovery, and strain. Founded in 2011, WHOOP recently closed a $100 million Series E fundraising round valuing the business at an incredible $1.2 billion.
In this episode, Will shares with us his idea of entrepreneurship, how he never wanted to start a business but did so as ‘a by-product of solving a real problem’. He talks us through why WHOOP initially targeted world-class athletes, how their target market has expanded and what he plans to do with their latest cash injection.
