What is Honeydew?
Honeydew is a virtual dermatology platform integrating healthcare services and wellness for people suffering from chronic skin conditions like acne, atopic dermatitis, plaque psoriasis, and others. We connect patients with licensed specialists in 24 hours instead of 4 months, help them access FDA-approved treatments from home with ongoing support 7 days a week, and provide insights on lifestyle triggers like diet, menstruation, and stress. We also help patients navigate insurance coverage for treatments or find the lowest cash-price options. Ultimately, we are building a gold mine of structured data which we hope will enhance drug development, phase IV research, and precision medicine.
Honeydew was founded by David Futoran (Wharton) and his dermatology Dr. Joel Spitz (Princeton, Columbia), after years of struggling with the healthcare system firsthand through personal experiences as patient and provider.
Honeydew is backed by top tier angels like Jeff Nadler (Teladoc), Dan Reich (Tula Skincare, DIBS Beauty), Cory Levy, and Adam Guild, as well as Browder Capital and V1.VC.
