Everyone wants to feel better. That is what drives humanity. Including us.

Research shows that human mental and physical health are the pillars of individual wellbeing and the prosperity of society. We now have various technologies to measure how well we are progressing on that path.

Humanity needs to be in better shape both physically and mentally. We are on a mission to bring together experts, companies, research organizations and athletes to work together to find solutions to global wellbeing challenges. 

At Hippos, we are building a unique cluster of expertise in exercise, athletics and wellbeing to understand how people stay well and feel better.
