StartUp Health launches Longevity Moonshot

StartUp Health, an organization with a portfolio of digital health companies across 12 countries, has started a new initiative geared toward extending and enhancing human life beyond age 50.

The establishment of Longevity Moonshot comes after StartUp Health invested in genomics technology company Human Longevity. Human Longevity is the 140th company to join StartUp Health's Academy for Healthcare Transformers portfolio.

"Aging is the biggest risk factor for every significant human disease," said Steven Krein, co-founder and CEO of StartUp Health. "We are excited to be launching The Longevity Moonshot with Human Longevity, Inc. as the founding partner because we believe that together we can inspire a global community of Healthcare Transformers to join our mission to extend and enhance a healthy lifespan and ultimately improve the health of billions."
