The session is made up of four, back-to-back interviews featuring Venrock and Robin, 415 and Lemonaid, Thrive Capital and Honor, and Grandrounds and Venrock – each representing a unique stage in the investment cycle from Seed to Series C.
Register today for your front row seat to these intimate insider conversations between digital health CEOs and the VCs who believe in them.
Seed: Punit Soni of Robin with Bryan Roberts of Venrock
Fail fast, fail often, as the expression goes except that Robin isn’t failing. Robin is a brand new digital assistant for doctors and after only five months of writing the first line of code, are already in pilot studies and receiving glowing reviews for their design. The product uses machine learning and always-on voice, and is backed by Venrock. Bryan Roberts and Punit Son sit down together at WinterTech to discuss the opportunities Venrock sees in Robin.
Series A: Paul Johnson of Lemonaid with Grace Stanat of 415
The healthcare industry is experiencing a shortage of physicians, increased wait times, and rising costs, but luckily for us Lemonaid Health bypasses these barriers by tackling the trifecta all at once. Their accessible platform allows patients to access care online for some of the most common reasons to visit a doctor – birth control, sinus infection, STD testing – through Lemonaid’s advanced algorithm and machine learning tool… for $25, in less than 2 hours. With an 11 million dollar investment raised in May led by Novartis and Hikma Ventures and joined by Correlation Ventures, Adaptive Healthcare Fund, Vega Ventures, and 415, investors agree.
Series B: Seth Sternberg of Honor with Kareem Zaki of Thrive Capital
Looming healthcare crisis in which 76 million baby boomers now or will require increased levels of care on a scale our country hasn’t ever experienced. The weight of this care is falling on the grown children of baby boomers but they can’t do it alone. Enter Honor, which connects caretakers to family members and care plans without the analog experience that existing agencies offer. According to Thrive Capital, an investor in Honor, it was ownership of the end-to-end customer experience as well as the robust data capture, that drew their investment attention towards Honor.
Series C: Owen Tripp of Grandounds with Bob Kocher of Venrock
From 2011 to 2015 Grandrounds raised a whopping $106,000,000 in their quest to get patients to the right doctor for the right treatment every time. Employer groups like Comcast, and Walmart already use Grandrounds to take better care of their employees but they didn’t land such large customers overnight. Owen Tripp of Grandrounds and Bob Kocher of Venrock sit down to discuss their working partnership, the disagreements they’ve had over the years, and give insight into what those closed-door meetings look like.
Don’t miss the opportunity to join the session that is representing each unique stage of the investment cycle.
