Three more unicorns join the herd

Entrepreneurs are riding the last funding waves of 2020—and Olive, Everlywell, and Virta Health just caught some big ones. With this latest funding in tow, they are digital health’s three newest unicorns. However, the pressure to decide whether to go public, remain private (and continue to acquire), or aim for a strategic exit looms on the horizon. For more on how entrepreneurs make these decisions, join Rock Health CEO Bill Evans and 7wireVentures Partner Alyssa Jaffee on 12/10 at 12pm PT as they sit down with digital health leaders Lee Shapiro, Gina Bartasi, Abner Mason, and Naomi Allen, to discuss how they’ve led companies through mergers, acquisitions, IPOs, and SPACs. Register here to join the conversation.
