$3.7m Funding for seed capital was raised by Conceive, an NYC-based digital fertility platform called.

The company plans on using the funds to expand its operations and reach new customers.
Lauren Berson is Conceive’s CEO and founder. She aims to improve the health of women by helping them get pregnant quicker, cut down on costs and find diagnoses. Its outcomes-based health platform – designed by tech executives from WW (formerly Weight Watchers), Omada Health, MasterClass, a16z, and health providers from Cornell and CCRM – combines three key elements — cohort-based community, evidence-based education, and 1:1 coaching — into a holistic program that helps members navigate and accelerate their fertility journey.
All are welcome to apply for the public beta. Conceive members complete an online questionnaire to find the best peer group that suits their needs. The members meet for 60 minutes once a week. They also have access to their peer groups and 1:1 coaching throughout the journey. Members also have access to evidence-based tools to speed up their journey to building a family. The program is eight weeks long, and costs $549; scholarships are available for those who can’t afford it.
Conceive plans to launch other fertility products for men, LGBTQ+ partners and patients interested in egg freezing later this year.
