The startup’s mission is to improve standards for women’s health by providing women around the world with access to reproductive education
Bloom Health, a startup working to improve the future of women’s health, was recently named the winner of BIP Ventures’ Startup Showdown. The company, led by co-founder and Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management MBA candidate Julia Schuller, will receive a $120,000 investment prize and access to a wide variety of resources and opportunities as a full-fledged member of the BIP Ventures portfolio.
Schuller, a Dean’s Scholar at Owen, is a popular women’s health advocate on TikTok and has been featured on BuzzFeed. She partnered with her doctor, Dr. Danielle Miller, to launch Bloom Health as a public benefit corporation in May 2023. The startup’s mission is to improve standards for women’s health by providing women around the world with access to reproductive education. The company’s flagship product identifies a woman’s fertile window through use of a proprietary algorithm.
“I am honored to have Bloom Health selected as the winner of the Startup Showdown and join the BIP Ventures portfolio. Since I began my MBA at Vanderbilt, so many doors have opened thanks to the support of the Wond’ry, programs like Launch and the faculty at Owen Graduate School of Management,” Schuller said. “This investment continues our pre-seed round at a $10 million valuation cap, which enables my co-founder and me to begin the FDA process for our medical device. Thank you to the judges and the BIP Ventures team for believing in the next generation of women’s health.”
