Entrepreneurs have new technologies and new business models that improve health outcomes and save time and money. But entrepreneurs don’t always have the connections to payers and providers or the knowledge about how services are paid for by Medicaid. They may also not have access to the necessary investment to scale their solutions within Medicaid.
We partner with innovators at emerging companies to bring their solutions to providers, health systems, payers, and patients.
We invest in early- through growth-stage companies, offering critical investment capital and network-building support to mission-aligned entrepreneurs. Mission-aligned companies are those seeking to improve access and ensure value-based health care for people living on low incomes in California.
Our team brings deep knowledge in policy, delivery system partners, and reimbursement within Medicaid and California, which gives us a unique ability to help our portfolio companies navigate California’s complicated Medicaid ecosystem.
We are doing it. For the longest time, people said it was impossible to improve Medicaid. But look at us — together with the amazing health care providers with whom we are partnering — we are doing it.
