Greater Austin Chamber A-List Award winner EverlyWell received national attention when the Austin-based startup appeared on ABC's popular business-themed program, Shark Tank. Austin-based CEO Julia Cheek successfully earned a $1 million line of credit for a 5 percent equity stake in the company from Shark Lori Greiner.
Founded in 2015 in Dallas, Julia Cheek relocated the company to Austin a year later. Since then EverlyWell has raised $5 million in total funding, had revenue last year of $2.5 million, and this year expects revenue of $5 million. The company sells 13 at-home kits for testing everything from cholesterol, to vitamin deficiency, to supplying DNA information to customers.
