In June 2010, Yogen Dalal, Sundeep Madra, and Chamath Palihapitiya conceived the idea behind Glooko because each one of them was touched by diabetes. The product was then incubated at Xtreme Labs (acquired by Pivotal Labs).

We are a team dedicated to helping people with diabetes live life while effortlessly managing their diabetes.
