HEALWELL AI Announces Strategic Investment in xAI to Accelerate Development of Healthcare Focused Large Language Models That Benefit from xAI Developer Ecosystem

  • HEALWELL completes USD $2,000,000 strategic investment into an xAI investment vehicle as part of its capital allocation strategy where it seeks to enhance and accelerate the development of its healthcare focused data science capabilities by partnering with world class platforms and seeking opportunities to integrate them with its own proprietary data and technology.

  • HEALWELL has made this investment through Think 1st Principles (“T1P”), an investment fund founded by HEALWELL shareholder and strategic advisor Massimo Agostinelli, which is the “Muskonomy” arm (Elon Musk oriented fund) of the prominent Agostinelli Family Office backed by billionaire patriarch Robert F. Agostinelli of Rhone Group.

  • With this investment, HEALWELL will have access to the closed xAI Developer Program with an opportunity to leverage xAI resources and expertise, including various large language models (“LLMs”), that have the potential to enhance the Company’s product development efforts.

Toronto, Ontario, June 26, 2024 – HEALWELL AI Inc. (TSX: AIDX) (OTCQX: HWAIF) (“HEALWELL” or the “Company“),  a healthcare technology company focused on AI and data science for preventative care, is pleased to announce that it has completed a USD $2,000,000 strategic investment, indirectly through a T1P investment vehicle, in a financing round of X.AI Corp. (“xAI”), an artificial intelligence company founded by Elon Musk in 2023. This opportunity has been made available for HEALWELL by shareholder and strategic advisor Massimo Agostinelli through the T1P Muskonomy arm of the Agostinelli Family Office backed by patriarch billionaire Robert F. Agostinelli of Rhone Group.

Mr. Massimo Agostinelli comments, “T1P is dedicated to giving our partners, including HEALWELL, direct access to and participation in the Muskonomy in order to support and invest in the Elon Musk ecosystem of companies based on the philosophy “think first principles”. I am very pleased to be supporting Elon Musk and xAI through this investment made by HEALWELL, a leading North American healthcare artificial intelligence company focused on preventative care.” Agostinelli continues, “After over a decade of knowing and investing with Brian Paes-Braga, a co-founder of HEALWELL, it became increasingly clear that the potential synergies between HEALWELL and xAI needed to be explored. I look forward to seeing what these two companies are capable of achieving together.”

Along with this strategic investment, HEALWELL will have access to the closed xAI Developer Program; allowing HEALWELL to leverage the world-leading technical and AI oriented expertise and resources of xAI. This access will provide HEALWELL with a significant opportunity to enhance and accelerate its product development capabilities and fine-tune Large Language Models (“LLMs”) that may benefit from the xAI developer ecosystem and unique datasets. Models fine-tuned in conjunction with the xAI ecosystem could be paired with the LLMs that HEALWELL has already fine-tuned, and it is expected that such models could be highly useful for scientific and clinical inquiry.

Mr. Steven Aviv, Chief Technology Officer of Pentavere, a HEALWELL subsidiary, commented, “There are many potential technology benefits for HEALWELL as we embark on this unique partnership. In addition to providing access to global AI thought leaders and sophisticated development tools, the xAI platform is uniquely focused on enhancing model explainability. Understanding in detail why a large, complex AI model makes the decisions it does is paramount in healthcare and could be an important point of differentiation to our customers. Paired with the rich datasets from active clinical discussions on X and our impressive access to datasets through the WELL Health ecosystem and Pentavere hospital network, this could be highly useful for scientific and clinical enquiry.”

Dr. Alexander Dobranowski, CEO of HEALWELL, added, “We are very pleased to be partnering with xAI, one of the most valuable AI companies globally. This strategic investment marks a significant opportunity for HEALWELL and provides a privileged position in one of the world’s best capitalized and most ambitious AI companies. In addition, access to the closed xAI developer ecosystem provides meaningful opportunity for the HEALWELL team to leverage the best-in-class talent and resources at xAI.”

This investment round marks the first time xAI has accepted outside capital to fuel its future growth prospects.
