Spotify founders back new Swedish longevity clinic

Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon put €4m into Stockholm’s Sand Clinic focused on healthy aging.

A new longevity clinic backed by Spotify co-founders Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon is preparing to open its doors in Sweden. Sifted reports that “Sand Clinic” has successfully secured €4.3 million in investment, with Ek and Lorentzon each holding a 25% stake each in the venture.

Offering a comprehensive suite of longevity services, Sand Clinic’s founders Anna Levander and Jennie Sandqvist are aiming to adopt a new approach to healthcare, with a focus on healthy aging and personalized well-being. Located in Stockholm, the clinic boasts a team of specialist physicians, dieticians, nutrition specialists, coaches, physiotherapists, and ultrasound experts.

Guided by biomarker analysis, Sand Clinic members will have access to a range of “scientifically proven” services, including vascular ultrasound, gynecology, primary care, blood samples, heart and muscle performance checks, vacuum therapy, red light sauna, and a gym equipped for personalized exercise routines.

According to Sifted, the clinic’s membership structure includes primary care and regular check-ups, along with an annual three-hour full-body examination. Memberships are expected to range from €1,000 to €10,000 per month.

The clinic’s approach also apparently leverages the growth in data aggregation in healthcare to enhance cause and correlation analyses and aims to use technology to streamline collaboration and communication between different healthcare disciplines.

Ek is no stranger to the longevity field. Last year he co-founded medical scanning company Neko Health with the goal of transforming healthcare from reactive symptom treatment to disease prevention.
