Headquarters: Boston, MA
Founded in 2017, BRIO was created to empower individuals to better understand their health through a science-based platform. In order to achieve this goal, we have developed relationships with labs, medical providers, and employers. Our expertise puts us in a unique position to help expand COVID-19 testing access through employers, and we have focused all of our company efforts to work on this problem. Crunchbase recently listed us as a ‘Startup to Watch’ and we’re always proud to be picked up by our local tech journalists.
