Guava's mission is to empower people to understand and improve their health

To accomplish our mission, people need complete access and control over their health information, and they need to be able to understand it simply to make informed decisions. We’re building a best-in-class solution that is bridging the information gap.

Our goal is to build an enduring company that measurably improves both our own health and the health of our fellow humans worldwide. This is reflected in our business model - we sell products directly to you and to those trying to keep you healthy so that our incentives are directly aligned with your health goals.

The Guava Team

Our team has diverse backgrounds in health and technology. The co-founders, Alex and Dylan, are engineers who built the personal assistant team at Graphiq, which was acquired by Amazon Alexa in 2017 to power Alexa's Q&A.

The team at Guava includes ex-Amazon employees who worked closely together for years, and executives with decades of experience in healthcare, medicine, and privacy law. Some of our team members manage chronic conditions themselves, ensuring we relentlessly build with the patient in mind.
