Liva is a health tech company headquartered in Copenhagen and London with the mission to improve the lives of people at risk of, or living with, chronic conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, obesity, and heart diseases by driving positive behavioural change. Liva blends scalable health coaching focused on personal human relationships with an intuitive and user-friendly interface. Liva was founded in 2015 by the team behind independent health information portal NetDoctor.com.
The on-going Covid-19 pandemic has led to a significant shift in acceptance of remote healthcare by European consumers. This shift in acceptance and the subsequent patient behaviour has given Liva a significant increase in interest from public healthcare providers and life science companies in 2020.
Liva is used by clients such as Novo Nordisk, AXA Health, Amgen, City of Copenhagen, Bupa Australia and several other key players in public healthcare, insurance and life science industries globally. Liva is also a partner to NHS England on its world-leading National Diabetes Prevention Programme. Liva is currently operational in Britain, Australia, Ireland, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland with operations currently being setup in Germany and Switzerland.
“This new funding, from one of Europe’s strongest purpose-led, consumer growth investors, will substantially accelerate our expansion in core European markets,” says André Sode, CEO of Liva Healthcare. “COVID-19 has demonstrated how effective remote digital health solutions can be. With healthcare providers around the world looking for scalable solutions to combat the rise in diabetes and obesity, we are ideally placed to support and have experienced a significant increase in interest as a result.”
“This investment represents a major new entry into digital health for Verlinvest, where technology is fuelling consumer revolutions,” says Simone Sallustio, Executive Director at Verlinvest. “Digital healthcare has been vital in getting treatment to patients during the pandemic and this trend will continue as effective virtual programmes give people more flexible healthcare options. Liva’s advanced technology and proven clinical outcomes set it apart from its competitors. In this exciting and rapidly evolving space, Liva’s experience and established partnerships represent a strategic choice for Verlinvest.”

Världspremiär från Unicontrol: 3D-maskinstyrning utvecklad efter grävlastarens behov12.4.2021 06:00:00 CEST | Pressmeddelande
Först utvecklade Unicontrol världens första 3D-maskinstyrningssystem med inriktning på mindre grävmaskiner. Nu har danska Unicontrol kommit med en ny innovation och utvecklat ett intuitivt maskinstyrningssystem för grävlastare. Det har skett i nära samarbete med den svenska maskintillverkaren Huddig. Tillsammans har de utvecklat användarvänlig styrning åt maskinföraren, som både ökar användningsmöjligheterna och lönsamheten för grävlastare. Ju mindre maskinerna på en byggarbetsplats står still, desto bättre är det för det ekonomiska resultatet i ett byggprojekt. En grävlastare är en mer allsidig och flexibel maskin än en vanlig grävmaskin. Trots det blir maskintypen ofta bortvald på större byggarbetsplatser, eftersom de har saknat fullständig 3D-maskinstyrning av maskinens olika funktioner. Grävlastarna har inte kunnat samla in alla data och har heller inte varit med i byggbranschens digitaliseringsvåg. Denna utmaning har Unicontrol nu löst tillsammans med Huddig. Parterna har anlitat
