About Rock Health

The first venture fund dedicated to digital health.

We want to make healthcare massively better for every human being. We support companies improving the quality, safety, and accessibility of our healthcare system.

What we do

Rock Health exists to fund and support entrepreneurs working at the intersection of healthcare and technology. Put simply, our mandate is impact. We want to make healthcare massively better for every human being—driving down the cost to deliver improved services to more people. Massively better means incredible change—it’s improvement by an order of magnitude or more along every dimension—healthcare that is incredibly functional, reliable, convenient, and yes, inexpensive. Ultimately, it looks like a system that we love.

Our portfolio companies are tackling problems in mental health, smoking cessation, hospital and payer administration, and diabetes, in addition to many, many others. As early stage investors we seek to invest in relentless problem solvers, and support them in growing scalable, sustainable businesses making a positive impact.

Our internal mantra is to act as an early employee, not as an advisor or mentor. That means getting our hands dirty doing actual work. We support our companies on a wide range of business issues, including fundraising, go-to-market planning, customer development, business development, contracting, pricing, marketing, communications, and PR.

Rock Health partners span medical institutions, corporate strategic partners, and venture capital firms—they’re our allies who provide our companies with varied perspectives and strategic insights on the healthcare industry.

But the most valuable service we offer actually isn’t provided by us, it’s the community of founders. We are extraordinarily fortunate that our most successful founders give the most back to the Rock Health ecosystem. We work together to support one another on this journey to build a better healthcare system. Join us and build something useful.
