How to ignore the noise with Isabelle Kenyon from Calibrate
A whopping 75 percent of American adults are overweight or obese – and that number is only growing. Enter Calibrate, the modern metabolic health medical store that is transforming the way the world deals with weight. Isabelle Kenyon started Calibrate when her mother came to her for advice. Kenyon realized that the science of weight loss was clear, but the industry lacked a consumer-first approach. Since the company’s inception in 2020, it has raised over $ 27 million in funding and seen usage up 54 percent from the previous month. Isabelle shares why she’s struggling to change the conversation about weight loss, how she hires a world-class group of industry experts on her startup journey, and what the shift to consumers who pay for their health care means across the industry.
