Zurich-based startup Boddy has successfully concluded a seed round, securing $2.2 million to support its growth following its expansion into North America. Notably, Dr. Li Wu, founder of the behavior-change app Virtusan, is a lead investor in Boddy. The seed round also received backing from existing investors.

Boddy’s Wellness Marketplace
Boddy operates a global fitness and wellness marketplace that combines travel and a healthy lifestyle. Travelers can use the platform to search, compare, and book wellness, health, and fitness activities while on vacation. This not only promotes overall wellness for travelers but also enables health operators to attract new customers and boost revenue.
Strategic Partnership with Virtusan
The recent funding has led to a strategic partnership between Boddy and Virtusan, aligning their vision for mind and body health. Hannes Boller, co-founder and CEO of Boddy, expressed excitement about the investment and the potential it holds for revolutionizing the travel and wellness industry.
Dr. Li Wu’s Vision
