Our Approach

Investment Philosophy and Model

Echo Health Ventures focuses on hands-on, purpose-driven strategic venture capital and growth equity investing.

We invest in companies 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 deliver both strategic impact and financial returns.

Our model is uniquely designed with:

  • A governance model and organizational structure that are modeled for deep integration at all levels of the organizations we serve
  • A dedicated, trustworthy Echo Health Advisors team that is embedded in our health plan organizations to facilitate relationships, help remove barriers, and solve complex challenges
  • A disciplined investment approach, resulting in a portfolio that accelerates our Alliance members’ efforts to transform health care
  • Highly relevant, actionable innovation to partners that accelerate development of portfolio companies

Collaboration is in our DNA. Echo drives true health care transformation by building strong relationships between enterprises and innovators. We navigate these relationships to deliver sustainable, impactful market solutions.

We’ve found great value in this model, which we measure through value creation across our portfolio, active engagement between portfolio companies and Alliance members, and collaboration with over 70 investors across the country.
