About the role

About Fella Health

Fella Health helps middle-aged men live 10 years longer.

We are the telemedicine clinic for bigger guys, worldwide. We use medical weight loss treatment to solve our fellas' most pressing healthcare need, then remain a fella's core healthcare provider for the rest of their life - focused on men's health, longevity, mental health, and primary care.

We will have served 1 million fellas by the end of 2026, and 10 million fellas by the end of 2028.

Our mission is to solve male obesity worldwide, by accelerating the take-up of GLP-1s in middle-aged men. From this, we’ll become the world’s leading men’s health brand.

We’ve grown >100x since Sept 2022 (currently growing >30% MoM) and are strongly cashflow positive. We have expanded our state coverage to >95% of US population, have started to expand our clinical protocol beyond weight (e.g. testosterone), and are eyeing up international expansion.

We're still a young startup and are moving quickly. We have a long way to go. This is still Day 1.

  • Complexity: you're highly organized and can complete multiple projects concurrently.

Our cultural standards

These are the core cultural standards to which we hold ourselves & our team members at Fella:

  • Belief in the mission — we will have served 10 million fellas by the end of 2028 and we transform the lives of most fellas who join. We have a lot of work to do. We are obsessed with our fellas and are dedicated to the mission.

  • Bulldozing barriers — the world is malleable and we shape it. We truly believe this and act accordingly. We are at the mercy of no one but ourselves.

  • Unwavering integrity — we are at the frontier, so we often live in ambiguity with no trodden path. When we can’t look to others for guidance, we must maintain impeccable ethics and unwavering integrity.

  • Enduring frugality — we are frugal. We hate being wasteful and we are anti-luxury. We spend our cash wisely & carefully - in a way that would make our grandmas proud.

  • Do what is needed — speed is critical and often the solutions we need are messy. We are comfortable moving quickly and taking on gritty work.

  • End-to-end ownership — we are comfortable owning projects from noticing the problem to delivering the outcome.

  • Dedication to excellence — we are obsessed with our role, with a commitment to compounding self-improvement.

  • Commitment to candor — we believe in open communication and transparency. We are clear & caring communicators, welcoming feedback.

  • Only the paranoid survive — the road of expansion is bumpy. We are not fair weather sailers; we embrace the storms. However much we’ve already done, however far we’ve already come — all our work is still ahead of us.

  • Keep your head down — we’re boring people doing exciting work. We don’t chase short-term status: no media profiles, no unnecessary conferences, no investor drinks. We ignore short-term dopamine hits and focus on what matters.

🎯 “You just build an amazing experience. Make each step amazing. Make every decision in the long term interest of the client. Give the client massively more value than you take.” — a poetic extract from one of our advisors

About Fella Health

Fella Health is the telemedicine clinic for men with obesity, backed by Y Combinator. With Fella, patients meet an obesity specialist to prescribe FDA-approved medications, while they undertake personalized health coaching through our app.

Obesity is the largest chronic disease in the US (>$100bn spent each year) and the traditional solution ("move more, eat less") only works long-term for ~10% of people. But obesity treatment is radically changing due to a new wave of medication options which are 3x more effective than previous options. In addition, only 10% of those using weight management services are men: all programs market to women, not tackling the stigma men feel around this.

Fella's founder is Richie Cartwright (https://www.linkedin.com/in/richard-cartwright). Richie personally struggled with binge eating for 6 years. After studying at Cambridge University, he built and sold an AI company working with the UK government. He built a 10k-follower Instagram community around men's binge eating.
