Who's who in digital health & health IT? We used CB Insights Board Search to highlight 15 prominent VC investors who sit on the most boards in the industry.
As software continues to invade healthcare and the health & wellness space, capital is flooding into digital health/health IT startups. Last year alone, CB Insights tracked $4.46B in funding to companies in the digital health space, a YoY increase of over 102%.
With the growth in deals and funding, we wanted to use CB Insights Board of Directors Search to highlight some of the VCs you should know in the Digital Health / Health IT area. It’s one thing to know that Kleiner Perkins or Google Ventures is actively investing in the ecosystem, but analyzing data on board member relationships can help easily identify that it’s Beth Seidenberg and Krishna Yeshwant that are the torchbearers for the respective firms in digital health.
So using CB Insights new Board of Directors Search, we took a look at some of the investors who sit or have sat on the boards of the most digital health & health IT companies.
