How our venture started

In 2015 I had an interesting job in a large health care company, helping hospitals, health care centres and public organizations find better solutions for providing health care. I had the opportunity to see how the health care sector works as a whole and what could be done better especially within primary care and public health.

At about the same time my co-funder to be, André Heikius, had started a weight loss clinic in Neo hospital (now part of Mehiläinen), gathering a team of experts in treatment of obesity and the psychological aspects of weight loss.

Observing the health care scene, seeing the problems and the costs, we decided there was a need for more action within preventive health care. We found it troubling that so many health problems can be reduced with the aid of better eating and preventive care, but these issues do not get the attention they need.

So we decided to start Edevent.

The name of the company comes from edere, Latin for eating and venture, a risky journey. And so we started our risky journey within food, lifestyle intervention and the treatment of obesity.

The focus of the company has changed somewhat since the start but our main goal has always been to provide tools for early intervention and making nutrition expertise easily accessible to a wider range of users.

We want to do what we can to ease the global burden of obesity. There is only so much one company can do, but we hope we can nudge knowledge, opinions and action at least a bit in the right direction.
