Today on Health in 2 Point 00, we’re talking about our new conference in September: Policies, Techies, & VCs: What’s Next for Health Care. On Episode 213, Jess ask me about some massive deals. Thirty Madison gets $140 million – they are now a unicorn. Babylon Health is going public via a SPAC – $575 million expected to be raised during this with a $3.6 billion valuation. Coming out of stealth, Intrinsic raises $113 million in the eCommerce space — and Dr. Oz is in this one. —Matthew Holt
On Episode 143 of Health in 2 Point 00, we have all the alphabets in the raising series represented ;)! Jess asks me about Lumeon raising a $30M Series D for their care orchestration centers, Nurx raising a $22M Series C to develop out its online pharmacy presence, Thirty Madison getting $47M and Johnson & Johnson is an investor this round, Bodyport closing an $11.2 M Series A for their weighing scale platform that can detect early cardiovascular disease, and Kumanu raising a $3M Series A to grow out its platform that helps people figure out their lives’ purpose.
Be sure to check out our talk from the 7 competitor CEOs to Teledoc & Livongo who weigh in about the $19B merger. If you want to join our book club, we are reading UnHealthcare: A Manifesto for Health Assurance, which is a how-to for creating a platform for a revolutionary future for healthcare, by Hemant Teneja (VC at General Catalyst) and Stephen Klasko (CEO at Jefferson Health System). We will have a video on our discussion with the authors which will be published on the 3rd Wednesday of every month! —Matthew Holt
