Invested: Pre-Seed, April 2019
Nearly half of American adults are actively trying to lose weight. The vast majority are using outdated weight loss options rooted in calorie deprivation and excessive exercise. Still, over 90% of attempts to reach a healthy body weight are unsuccessful. Wavelength is approaching the category differently, with a weight loss program that combines mindfulness behavioral therapy, neuroscience and nutrition. Through audio-based content, Wavelength is providing a set of behavior modification tools to help users to better understand the emotions around eating, reduce cravings and eat better.
Wavelength was started by Sarah Stites who has a very personal connection to the topic. Sarah lost over 150 lbs over during her own personal weightloss journey and has maintained a healthy body weight for over a decade. With the help of nutritionists and behavioral psychologists, Sarah has now productized the tools and techniques that helped her while simultaneously building a community rooted in empathy and compassion. We met Sarah in April of 2019 and led her pre-seed round. Wavelength was the tenth investment made by Lakehouse.
