On the road to impact

Leading an early-stage digital health startup is a bit like driving a car at night—you know where you’re going, but can only see what’s within the cones of your headlights. Rock Health Advisory launched a survey to shed light on “mile markers” that can be helpful for early-stage founders at the wheel in today’s rapidly evolving digital health environment, as well as for their investors and enterprise partners. We're excited to share insights from the 2023 Rock Health Digital Health Startup Benchmarking Survey, which provides some guideposts across measures like profitability, customer acquisition cost, lifetime value, and business expenses. Check out our latest piece which dives into top takeaways from the survey.
