BeforeWeDo is a health 2.0 startup that helps its users to understand their own and their partners sexual health before they become intimate. Based on their demographics and location and latest test results, it provides its users with specific recommendations. Think of Mint.com and Verisign for reproductive health.

With 19 million new STD/STI infections in the US every year, this is a problem worth solving!
The startup is part of the 2012 Bay Area chapters of the Founders Institute and the Startup Leadership Program incubator, both boasting a powerful network in all major startup cities around the world!
