HelloBetter overview

HelloBetter was founded in 2015 under the name GET.ON Institut für Online Gesundheitstrainings GmbH by research psychologists in partnership with health care insurance company BARMER.

HelloBetter is a provider of online mental health courses. Its courses were developed, evaluated, and implemented in a practice setting, and their effectiveness has been proven in over 30 randomised controlled trials. HelloBetter offers a wide range of evidence-based online mental health courses worldwide, with digital courses covering 8 problem areas (stress, depression, insomnia, depression in the case of chronic illness, chronic pain, alcohol consumption, excessive worry, and panic and anxiety).

HelloBetter works with national and international research groups, including FAU Erlangen, University of Ulm, VU Amsterdam, and Harvard University.

In June 2020 Allianz Partners collaborated with HelloBetter to offer digital, scientifically-backed mental wellbeing solutions.

HelloBetter raised approximately $7m in Seed funding in October 2021.

In March 2022 HelloBetter raised $13m to expand outside of Germany. The company reported they had seen an increase of 125% of clients treated from 2020 to 2021.

In May 2023 the company raised a €7m extension to its Series A funding round. The new capital will be used to increase the commercialisation of HelloBetter’s digital therapeutics (DTx) products in Germany, as well as for further expansion in Europe and the US. HelloBetter has six of its eleven cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) programmes available on prescription and recently hit the milestone of 10k patients.
