Who We Are
Our mission is to drive systemic health care transformation through hands-on, purpose-driven strategic venture capital and growth equity investing. We prioritize long-term partnerships and impact, with a focus on accelerating portfolio companies’ growth and bringing their innovations to scale nationally.
We know health care transformation requires meaningful partnerships between enterprises and innovators. Echo Health Ventures was founded in 2016 as a strategic collaboration between Cambia Health Solutions and Mosaic Health Solutions to drive this change and evolve the traditional venture model.
The Echo Innovation Alliance
In 2021, Echo Health Ventures launched the Echo Innovation Alliance, a powerful strategic investing engine that extends Echo’s proven investment model. The Alliance brings together Echo and USAble Corporation, the investing arm of Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, to invest in transformative companies and drive broader market impact. The unmatched depth of the Alliance offers investment sourcing and industry relationships across the US, while bringing together leading health solutions companies with demonstrated experience providing products and services to millions of Americans.
We invest in companies across all stages that catalyze health care transformation to improve outcomes, reduce overall cost and improve quality for all people. We operate under a dual mandate to invest in opportunities that both deliver financial returns and accelerate our parent corporate strategies.
Our model is uniquely designed with:
• Dedicated resources that build deep, collaborative relationships at all levels of our parent and portfolio companies
• A singular pipeline that provides broad scope and insight
• Decision-making that prioritizes the voice of our parent companies at each step in the investment process
• Nationwide presence and focus through our own offices, portfolio companies and parent companies
We’ve found great value in this model, which we measure through value creation across our portfolio, active engagement between portfolio companies and parent companies, and collaboration with over 70 investors across the country.
Our market development model is one of our key differentiators. We have a dedicated team that provides business management consulting services through our hands-on support to our portfolio companies, focusing on strategic relationships, access to subject matter experts and partnership development.
Echo Health Ventures partners with innovative companies that are also thinking differently. Together with our portfolio companies, we're identifying bold, new and original ways to meet the needs of tomorrow's health care consumers.
