For giving athletes a new edge
Most Creative People

Alessandro Babini is the CEO and cofounder of the health and fitness startup Humon, the maker of the Hex, a muscle-oxygen sensor that’s helping elite and professional athletes achieve breakthroughs, avoid injury, and get custom insights into their training. During a leave from grad school, the Paris native did a yearlong stint at a VC firm working in consumer mobile and wearable tech and decided he wanted to be on the other side of the table, building things. He created the Hex with a cofounder he met while studying at MIT Sloan. The wearable has been sold out each month since it launched in February 2018; in 2019, the company plans to add an AI training component to its app to help users get more out of the device, and is pursuing partnerships with athletic companies to embed its technology in their clothing.
