The Perx Story

We’re a rapidly growing global company who are nuts about helping those most at risk in healthcare.

A brief history of Perx

Perx was started by two guys with the same mission. 

Our story starts 7 years ago... Strap in.

Two friends, one idea

Hugo and Scott have been best friends since high school. They played sports together, surfed together, and generally schemed about how to change the world.

In their early careers Scott studied experimental and behavioral economics at college, and Hugo consulted for high-engagement industries like consumer, retail and gaming. This exposed them to both the theories of behavior change but also how they were being applied to products.

Information flyers won’t help grandma.

Perx began when Hugo noticed his elderly grandmother struggling to stick to her doctor’s treatment plan. She was overwhelmed, and the only support she received were educational flyers from the clinic.

Scott and Hugo realized that the highly engaging, ‘sticky’ tools they’d seen in industries - like social media, gaming and gambling - could be used for good to help people like Hugo’s grandmother.

Motivate for good

That founding principle still drives Perx today.

We believe that older patients, those managing multiple chronic conditions and those in financial hardship deserve the best health support. These are the folks that digital health typically leaves behind, but we take pride in making products that motivate them to look after their own health.

Our values

How we show up in the world every single day.

Better every day

We know small improvements made today compound tomorrow, so we move quickly and iterate.

One team, one dream

We are all on the same team, lending each other a hand to beat the most difficult challenges in healthcare.

Dare to play

Success comes from taking risks, playing with intent and having fun along the way.

Open book, open mind

Openness is our default, believing mutual transparency will allow us to solve the big problems together.
