Byrd is a coaching platform that works around everyday life to keep people running. It asserts that its unique EQAI-coach uses 1 billion variables to coach people to their goal, whether that’s simply to remain healthy or to hit a specific event. The company estimates that 200 million people were running globally in 2018. It seeks to target this group and become a contender in a fitness market that is estimated to be worth $2.4 billion. The company has created and tested two beta versions of its Android and iOS apps. It points out that it has conducted surveys involving hundreds of runners clocking in 20,000 km of running and incorporated that data into its portal. Byrd argues that its app has been built on Google Cloud infrastructure and is ready to horizontally scale. It will use 40% of the investment in product evolution, 20% in acquisition, 23% towards marketing, and 17% towards enriching customer experience.

Lime Global is a UK-based company dedicated to becoming the most customer-focused provider of health cover. Lime argues that conventional health insurance is too expensive and overly complicated. It intends to make health insurance affordable allowing customers to buy the top-ups they want without consulting advisers or filling long questionnaires. Lime Global claims to provide customers with a cancer cover providing a lump sum and support following diagnosis, access to 'Rapid Diagnostics' to avail private diagnostic tests, and an online platform where customers and employers can book and pay for clinical services. Lime Global aspires to become a contender in the UK private healthcare market set to grow more than £8 billion. The company points out that it has secured 5 star Trustpilot reviews over the last year with zero complaints to date. They intend to use the investment to support their expansion into Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), mental health modules and e-pharmacies, scale customer acquisition, and support the next stage of its growth in late 2021 and early 2022.
