Learning to Sleep, a company that develops a digital CBT-based tool to help people with sleep problems, has raised 3.3 MSEK from Almi Invest, Alltrum, Proos Consulting and Malte Rohlin. The capital will be used to continue the company’s expansion, both in Sweden and internationally.
Learning to Sleep has developed the clinically validated digital treatment program Sov bättre, which treats people with persistent sleep problems. With Sov bättre, the patient receives an individualized 5-week treatment based on CBT, cognitive behavioral therapy and a personal sleep coach.
“More than half a million individuals seek care for sleep problems every year, only in Sweden. At the same time, waiting times for assistance through therapy are often long and the cost for society high. With Learning to Sleep’s evidence-based digital tools, more people can get help faster, at lower cost,” says Per Antonsson, Investment Manager at Almi Invest.
The fact that the tool is digital, proving its users with reminders to perform their tasks, gives greater compliance than other non-digital aids programs. So far, Learning to Sleep has treated over 1,000 patients in Sweden and 94 percent of them now have better sleep.
“We are very pleased to welcome Almi Invest as an investor in the company, now when we are preparing to take the next step in our journey. Almi Invest provides us not only with capital, but also a large network of investors and expertise in financing. Now we are looking forward to an exciting autumn and to contribute to a better health in Sweden and in the countries we are about to expand our business,” says Micael Gustafsson, CEO of Learning at Sleep.
The capital will be used to continue the establishment of the service on the Swedish market, primarily in primary care, and to start the preparations for the international launch.
Learning to Sleep is a Sting Incubate company.
