Kranus Health aims to help men lead healthier and longer lives through access to the latest medical care. Founders Thilo Kleinschmidt and Jens Nörtershäuser have known each other for many years through their time together at McKinsey & Company, and both have been passionate about the possibilities of digital transformation for years. Both also had a keen interest in the health sector. Jens is originally a bio-chemical engineer and has years of professional experience in the pharmaceutical sector. Thilo comes from a medical family, his father is a urologist. So the idea to found Kranus at the beginning of 2020 was obvious and also took place against the backdrop of regulatory changes, especially the Digital Health Care Act (DVG). Since then, it has been possible in Germany to significantly improve healthcare through digital therapies. Professor Kurt Miller, former head physician of urology at Charité Berlin, and CTO Nikolay Dimolarov (Celonis, among others) complement the founding team to jointly implement Kranus' vision. To this end, Kranus Health develops digital therapies based on current scientific findings supported by telemedical care from specialists. The spectrum of services ranges from therapies for taboo diseases such as erectile dysfunction to early detection and prevention (e.g., cardiovascular diseases).

MINDANCE clients thus receive a financial subsidy of up to 100% for the use of MINDANCE. This year this model is to be rolled out on a large scale in cooperation with other health insurance companies.
PraxisEins is a health tech start-up founded in 2022 with the aim of solving the looming care vacuum in the GP sector across Germany. Because GP care is hardly attractive for the young generation of doctors, more and more practice positions remain unfilled. Above all, the high administrative burden and the lack of compatibility between work and family life act as a deterrent and keep GPs from concentrating on patient care. To solve this problem, PraxisEins supports practices with software and process know-how. In doing so, the team helps with process management, recruitment, and operational management, thus actively relieving the medical staff.
