Today we are happy to announce our investment in Curus, a newly formed Nordic media and investment house focused on digital health.
Our joint ambition is to build a platform for accelerating growth companies, with the ability to both invest in and acquire majority stakes in digital health, health care and medtech companies. Alfvén & Didrikson is joined by investors Stefan Bengtsson via CSB Capital, e-health entrepreneur Alex Stendahl, Klarna CMO David Sandström, angel investor Lars Lindgren and former SEB New York CEO, Christian Dahlberg.
Curus was founded by CEO Johan Bloom, who has a background in the pharma industry and as a health tech investor and is led by Chair Anna Dalgaard, former e-health entrepreneur. Since its inception earlier in 2022, Curus has acquired Add Health Media's portfolio of some 20 fast growing companies within health tech such as Mindler, Doctrin, Medicheck, Knodd, Colivia och Findout Diagnostic. Curus has also invested in Olivia, a digital self-care for menopausal symptoms, Ella, a digital caregiver and platform for pregnant women, Dropmed, a digital marketplace for trading medical devices for healthcare and Ment, a digital platform for ADHD.
