Company Summary

 

Sproutel is Sesame Street for healthcare. Our flagship product is Jerry the Bear: a platform to engage children in play-based health education. We initially launched Jerry for type 1 diabetes and last year reached 4% of children newly diagnosed and 25% of ped. endocrinologist offices. We’re now using the Jerry character to create digital therapeutics disguised as mobile games and interactive stories that will reinvent healthcare for children.
