Sokratis Papafloratos, Numan’s Founder and CEO “We are building a new kind of healthcare company that gives men simple and accessible solutions for their health and wellbeing problems.”

“We help men understand their health better through a series of diagnostics and clinician consultations, and offer medical solutions that cover anything from Sexual Health, to Hair Loss, Smoking Cessation and General Wellbeing – all via a comprehensive digital health platform.”
