Today’s early-stage startup funding and acquisitions news:
Fertility-tracking iOS app Glow has raised $6 million in its first funding round from a group of investors that includes Founders Fund and Andreessen Horowitz. The startup was co-founded by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin, and the funding announcement coincides with the app’s debut on the Apple App Store. Glow offers a free fertility tracker to help predict a woman’s daily fertility level. It also offers a service called ‘Glow First’—an optional membership program where the $50/month users pay to participate is pooled and used to pay for fertility treatments for couples who don’t conceive within a specific period of time. It was founded in May of 2013 within Levchin’s development startup, HVF.
