Cloud-based platform accessing circa 25 wellness therapies (depending on location), such as acupuncture, massage, yoga, relationship counselling in a patient’s local area.
The Investment Opportunity
Keia was founded to enable patients to easily locate wellness practitioners in their local area. The Company’s cloud-based platform provides access to wellness therapies, ranging from acupuncture, massage and physiotherapy to relationship counselling and yoga. In addition, the wider wellness market also encompasses beauticians, hairdressers and masseurs and these professions will also be included in the Company’s innovative digital platform.
The platform aims to bring these varied services to the consumer via home visits, video appointments, and clinic visits. A significant selling point for the platform is that it allows the practitioners to build their own personalised ‘shop front’ and profile to attract custom.
The global fitness and wellness markets are highly competitive, with the Global Wellness Institute estimating a global market size of $4.2tn. However, the Company has reported that there is currently no single, potentially global platform that brings together all available wellness offerings into one single consumer view.
The Company has stated that its ultimate objective is to become the primary go-to source for consumers seeking wellness information and opinion, offering a benefit to both the needs of the consumer and the practitioner. It intends to become the trusted global brand through which consumers can research, compare and book.
