Kiddo, formally known as Good Parents Inc., announced a $16 million Series A round on Tuesday. Through a combination of wearables, parental coaching and telehealth, the company has its sights firmly set on managing care for kids with chronic health conditions.
Kiddo has been working on developing a wearable and software combo for children’s health for several years. The company was founded in 2016 by Jaganath “CJ” Swamy, who was initially interested in developing a health and wellness device that would be fun for kids to use and offer parents the ability to monitor health. However, the company has now revamped to focus fully on managing chronic health conditions.
