4 Healthtech Benefits Vendors Led by Black Founders

SUMMARY

Diversity in healthtech leadership is key to building a more equitable healthcare system. Here are four benefits vendors founded by Black entrepreneurs, providing support in a range of employee benefits categories — from mental health, to care services, to telehealth.

If we want to increase accessibility in healthcare, we need to build a healthcare system led by individuals who understand and identify with the needs of the population they serve. In other words, we need stronger diversity among healthcare leaders.

In recent years, several Black founders have launched healthtech companies that aim to provide accessible care to patients with a range of backgrounds and identities.

Still, only 1.2% of VC funding went towards Black founders in H1 of 2021. Stronger BIPOC representation in healthtech leadership — it’s a non-negotiable, as far as we’re concerned.

Read on to learn more about four benefits vendors with Black founders, all featured on the Nava Benefits Search Engine.
