An idea born in Texas when a family member was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes evolved into a healthtech startup that now calls Birmingham home.

Greens began as a texting service and app serving diabetic teenagers from vulnerable populations, offering culturally focused meal plans to help make it easier to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

Founded in Houston by Kehlin Swain, Isis Ashford and Dr. Jaylen James, the company first came to Birmingham to complete Prosper’s 12-week HealthTech Accelerator. The founders made the decision to relocate Greens after completing the program, believing Birmingham to be an ideal location to continue accelerating their success.
