Julia Hu, Lark Technologies


Julia Hu Biography

Julia created Lark to make healthcare more personal and caring. Knowing how hard it is to get healthier and having managed her own chronic disease, Julia brought together health experts and coaches from Stanford, Harvard and the NBA to form the Lark Health Committee.

Together with experts in artificial intelligence, they developed the Lark Chat app: a free, personal health coach that texts with people to help them get fitter, lose weight and get healthier – anytime, anywhere. A serial entrepreneur, Julia was named number one in “2015’s Top 10 Women in Tech,” “30 Under 30” by Inc. Magazine, and “Top Woman Inventor” by Marie Claire Magazine. Prior to founding Lark Technologies, Julia ran global startup incubator Clean Tech Open, her own green buildings startup, and was an EIR at Stanford's StartX incubator. She received her Master’s and Bachelor's degrees from Stanford, and half an MBA from MIT before leaving to start Lark Technologies, Inc. Julia stays fit by attending hip-hop dance classes and chatting with Lark about her snacks.
