    Our Story

    What we do saves lives!

    We are a fast growing health-tech startup helping people quit addictions by facilitating access to highly personalised cognitive behavioural therapy through a mobile app.

    Quit Genius was created when our co-founders Maroof, Yusuf and Sarim, whilst working as medical doctors, recognised that the holistic textbook version of medicine was not at all what was being provided for patients. The reality is that a stretched healthcare system fails to engage people in their medical care at the preventative stages.

    As a result, the $3 trillion currently spent on healthcare goes on to prevent only 10% of premature deaths. With digital therapeutics, we have the opportunity to prevent 40% of premature deaths that are caused by behavioural patterns.

    At Quit Genius, we are inventing a new class of healthcare technology designed to treat addictions and prevent disease. Quit Genius currently provides therapy at scale to help people stop smoking and vaping; however we are building a company that will create a portfolio of products across the addiction and mental health space.

    We have published groundbreaking results demonstrating the effectiveness of Quit Genius in multiple peer-reviewed research studies and have helped over 100,000 people quit smoking to date.

    We've won design awards from Apple, already helped hundreds of thousands of people quit smoking and scaled a platform to a million users. We've raised $14.1 million of funding from Octopus Ventures, Y Combinator, Merck & Co and Village Global (backed by Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates).
