VILNIUS, Lithuania – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Yours App, a UK-based wellness startup, has lifted a pre-series A round from Tesonet, a global cybersecurity company and startup accelerator.

In addition to the funds that will help evolve the product, Tesonet provides the startup with know-how in software development, marketing, sales, etc.
During the pandemic, Tesonet began researching the best mindfulness product to give to the more than 2,000 ever-expanding family members.

“Our decision to invest in Yours App should come as no surprise,” explains Tomas Okmanas. “Although Tesonet is primarily known in the cybersecurity arena, we also work with large-scale startups in several industries. Wellness is one of the areas we want to explore, as mental health and personal well-being deserve more attention in our rapidly changing world.
Yours App already has a solid foundation when it comes to its product, thanks to the hard work of its highly experienced team. The business is led by entrepreneur Janette Daubare, who is well versed in the customer experience, a key part of building subscription services.
“The wellness area is crowded and to be good you have to grow fast,” says the co-founder and CEO of Yours App. “Knowing the amazing track record of Tesonet Accelerator, I look forward to their help in improving our product, maximizing our marketing efforts, and finding better ways to serve our customers around the world. ”
According to Janette, as an investor, Tesonet brings more than just money. As capable software developers, the company will share its vast know-how to bring Yours App to the top of its class. In addition to supporting digital marketing and development, Tesonet will help Janette’s team navigate the world of B2B sales and corporate wellness. It will also unlock the experimental features of the app to its own 2,000-plus strong community, turning Tesonet into a big sandbox.
“At Tesonet, we’re geeks about meaningful technology, and wellness is an area where technology can have a particularly big impact,” says Tesonet co-founder Eimantas Sabaliauskas. “And just like in medicine, to really work, the approach must be personalized and adapted to the specific needs of the person. Yours App already has this approach embedded in its product, and with our help it will be able to help millions of people around the world.
