Kindara has raised $5.3M in seed funding to support fertility monitoring tools

Boston Seed Capital led the $5.3 million seed round. SOSV, Good Works Ventures, PV Ventures, MENA Venture Investments and 62 Mile Ventures also took part.

Digital health company Kindara, which develops products to help women monitor their fertility status, has raised a seed funding round to expand product development to attract a more diverse customer base. The funding will also go towards the roll out of Wink, a Bluetooth basal thermometer that syncs with its app to help women as they try to conceive or prevent that from happening, according to a company statement.

Boston Seed Capital led the $5.3 million seed round. SOSV, Good Works Ventures, PV Ventures, MENA Venture Investments and 62 Mile Ventures also took part.

Wink is expected to be shipped by the end of 2015. The idea is that it helps women track when they are ovulating.

Several companies have developed apps to support women’s health in recent years such as Cycle Technologies, Wildflower Health, and Welltwigs. Some startups have taken a different approach to women’s reproductive health, such as Counsyl, which developed a way to screen men and women for genetic conditions they might pass onto their offspring. Maven developed a physician search tool to make it easier to find OB-GYN doctors.
