I’m starting a new series to feature some startups sourced from our Fund81 VC forum members’ portfolios. In this episode, I interviewed Gurjot Narwal, CEO of Gini Health.
Gini Health is disrupting the supplement industry by making a smart and fully-customized multivitamin based on health data that changes according to continuous lifestyle data. Its app allows people to easily track their food, sleep, and poop (warning - there is some talk about poop :).
