wOS has announced that it raised US$1.2 million in a round led by Noemis Ventures, a New York fund, and with the participation of Y Combinator.
wOS is a digital platform for online exercise that was created in Mexico.
With this capital, wOS wants to develop new technologies focused on offering more personalized services based on their users’ preferences.
A large part of the investment will go to the national and regional positioning of the brand.
One year after its launch, the platform already has more than 25 thousand users of its personalized and immersive training.
The company offers new classes and live training every week; and it has two different business models: subscription and freemium.
wOS was founded in 2021 by Eduardo Mussali (CEO) together with Andie Illanes (COO) and Iddar Olivares (CTO).
