Manual
Historically, men have not been great at talking openly about their health, or seeking treatment. It’s this problem that Manual, a London-based health tech startup says is hoping to solve, as it announces a $30m Series A round, after quadrupling its revenues in 2020. The round included existing investors Cherry Ventures and Felix Capital, as well as new US-based backers Sonoma Brands, Waldencast, and FJ Labs. Manual offers men personalized treatments and ongoing care, based on a blood test and remote consultation, for conditions ranging from sexual health and skincare to hair loss and heart problems. https://bit.ly/3sCUhm1

Spotify
Spotify Inc said on Tuesday it has purchased Betty Labs, the company behind sports-focused social audio app Locker Room, to accelerate its move into live audio. New voice-based platforms, including invite-only social app Clubhouse, have seen rapid growth in recent months during the COVID-19 pandemic. Locker Room, launched in October 2020, became a popular spot for sports fans to chat and hold watch parties. Spotify did not disclose the cost of the acquisition. Betty Labs was initially backed by Lightspeed Venture Partners and later by GV, Alphabet Inc’s venture capital arm, and Precursor Ventures. Last October, Betty Labs raised $9.3 million in seed funding led by GV. https://reut.rs/31zQava
