Knownwell Secures $20M for Weight-Inclusive Primary Care

Knownwell, a primary care and metabolic health company, raised $20 million in Series A financing and launched an adolescent metabolic health program. The Boston-based company offers virtual and in-person care to patients in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire. Knownwell provides weight-inclusive primary care, metabolic health treatment, and support from registered dietitians, as well as other services. A16Z led the funding round due to the need for more obesity care support. The company plans to expand its offerings, invest in technology, and partner with pharmaceutical companies for clinical trials. It is also launching knownwell teens, a program for teens ages 13 to 18. Knownwell aims to serve more patients and advocate for adequate coverage of obesity treatment in the future.
