Tuune Co-Founder, Shardi Nahavandi, is revolutionising Women’s Health by offering individualized hormonal analysis and birth control.
Tuune announced the closing of a $4.6M fundraising round led by venture capital firm Octopus Ventures and included the likes of Aureum.
Speaking of the investment, Anjel Noorbakhsh Ashman, Investment Manager Aureum said:
“Tuune was my first deal as an Angel for Ada Ventures but I couldn’t say much until now. It has been a pleasure to witness the tangible steps this company is making to improve the healthcare experience for women.”

Tuune’s mission is to solve problems that women face with their hormonal health. Through this focus they are on a mission to make female hormones a pillar of modern holistic healthcare and bridge the gaps in understanding of conditions like PCOS; endometriosis; and cardiometabolic, mental, and bone health.
Shardi Nahavandi, the co-founder of Tuune, explained how her founder story led her to this point:
“After being misdiagnosed with cancer and dismissed by many healthcare professionals, I knew I had to not only advocate for myself but for all women who are told that side effects are normal”

The team will use the raise to launch in the U.S. market with a focus on developing a more individualised medical system that puts hormones first.
Peter Fish, Clinical Innovation Lead, reflected on the raise:
“It wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of our team, especially my co-founder Shardi Nahavandi”
