Alerje is Working to Improve Nutritional Safety

Alerje is an organization based out of Detroit, Michigan that addresses the issues regarding nutrition safety associated with food allergies.   

Javier Evelyn knew there was a demand for a solution regarding food safety and started Alerje in 2015. Evelyn is an entrepreneur who suffers life threatening food allergies, and so, he felt the need for this app personally. To solve the challenge of food allergy information, he gathered a team of individuals with diverse occupational backgrounds to help create a MedTech app. 

“Our collective backgrounds include design, mechanical engineering, mobile app development, medtech, health insurance/pbm, regulatory, as well as business development.” – Javier Evelyn, Alerje website

Allerje has accumulated more than ten sponsors and investors for the app since the firm’s inception. In recent news, the company received a $50k grant from Google to further the advancement of nutritional safety. The company has received total funding of $760k since 2015.

This year, the firm was awarded 3rd place at the Rocket Mortgage Detroit Demo Day, a pitch competition that invests in startup companies. The team’s hard work and innovation in the nutrition industry was recognized due to their patient design to lessen the cost of care.

“Our goal is to showcase, inspire, and invest in the Detroit entrepreneurial community. Demo Day is one part of a larger strategy of the Rocket Community Fund to elevate Detroit as a destination for small businesses and high growth startups by deploying capital and supportive resources.” – Laura Granneman, Rocket Mortgage spokesperson about Detroit Demo Day

Alerje continues to grow and improve their approach to nutritional safety with the help and support of a strong team and thoughtful investors.
