It’s such a special time for us here at dacadoo – this month we are turning 10 years old.
When dacadoo was founded, back in November of 2010, our CEO Peter Ohnemus had a dream – a vision – to make health and wellbeing understandable and measurable, giving everybody on the planet an opportunity to lead healthier lifestyles.
Looking back today, we are very pleased to see how far we’ve come. We now proudly support 35 out of the top 100 life & health insurance operators around the world, who place their trust in us for our Digital Health Engagement Platform (DHEP), accessible through white label or API options, our Risk Engine – for real-time health risk quantification – and our walking campaigns app, dacadoo GO.
It all started out at Peter’s boat house, after coming up with the idea of a health score whilst skiing in the Swiss Alps, where he gathered with experts and old friends to discuss whether this was an attainable concept and how to go about it. Well, here we are, ten years later and the dacadoo Health Score has become an industry standard. With a single number between 0 to 1,000 we are able to put a tangible score to our holistic health and compare ourselves with anyone else in the world, regardless of sex, age or country.
Health knows no borders and, trough our many customers and partners around the world, our Health Score is now present in almost every continent of this marvelous world (well, we still need to conquer Antarctica and keep developing our presence in the beautiful Africa).
We’d like to sincerely thank all our customers, partners, employees and investors for all the trust and support they have placed in dacadoo through the years. We couldn’t have done it without your commitment and belief in dacadoo.
Looking into the future, we’re so excited to wonder what the next 10 years will have in store for us. We can be certain of one thing for sure, and that is that we will continue to innovate, to develop our technology even further, to disrupt and to grow together, because at dacadoo, it’s not just about us… it’s, actually, all about you.
