    Andrew Conner, co-founder and Head of Engineering at Levels, spends a lot of time thinking about how the product will scale. In order to scale effectively, the infrastructure for the product will need to scale up quickly.

    #10 – Food for thought

    #10 – Food for thought

    Casey Means, Chief Medical Officer and one of the co-founders of Levels, changed her outlook on food at a young age. When she was 14 years old, she realized that food, and the philosophy behind it, was a deep and intimate relationship that would evolve continuously into her adult years.

    Her curiosity led her down the path of studying and understanding the biochemistry of the food that she was consuming. Eventually, that curiosity led her to become one of the co-founders of Levels.

    #9 – Swimming upstream

    In 2013, Sam Corcos, CEO and one of the co-founders of Levels, had a revelation when it came to media consumption. He realized that consuming information which was pushed upon him, specifically the news, wasn't beneficial to the way he used his time or the way he learned about the world.

    As a result, Sam ended up changing the way that he not only consumed information, but also the way he navigated the world because of it. And, he never looked back. Doing so changed him as a person and, moving forward, he carried this mindset into everything he was involved in building – including Levels.

    #8 – The raise

    In early 2020, Sam and Josh started having conversations with Investors about doing a Seed round. As initial conversations picked up, things changed drastically in the world.

    Between March and July of 2020, the team focused on execution. As they generated traction, they sparked interest from many Investors, which eventually led them to raise a $12M Seed round in the fall.

    #7 – Trust the process

    When the team started growing at Levels, Josh felt an innate sense of responsibility. But, it wasn’t bringing on new team members that was top of mind. Rather, he felt pressure to make Levels a success every time a new co-founder joined the team. People were leaving prominent roles and opportunities to come and build a company with a big vision, in highly regulated space.

    #6 – Laying the rails

    In the fall of 2019, the Levels team continued building the infrastructure needed to move the company into Beta. One of the requirements of being able to distribute CGMs to people was having a network of physicians and a distribution network of cloud-based pharmacies. With enough grit, the team was finally able to get a meeting with Truepill, and this ended up being a catalyst for getting the first orders shipped.

An inside look!

Great podcast that provides an inside look at Levels. Most startups don’t ever reveal their secrets, but Levels lays everything out in the open...it’s a pretty cool approach! This podcast has a similar vibe to the early episodes of Startup, combined with the conversational approach of Marc Maron. Excited to hear more!
