healthcare startups taking off in 2021 4x3

After 2020, healthcare startups will never be the same. 

Amid a pandemic, venture funding for startups hit a record, billion-dollar deals were struck, and companies braved the public markets for the first time.

With all eyes on the industry heading into 2021, Business Insider’s healthcare team interviewed 26 healthcare investors to learn which startups are poised to take off this year.

We asked the investors to name companies from their firms’ portfolios, and ones they haven’t invested in. We noted when investors have stakes in the companies they nominated. 

For some, that meant identifying startups that have seen their businesses take off amid the pandemic, like Everlywell, and others that have had to adapt as more care moved online, like Cityblock Health. Others still picked startups finding new ways to tackle conditions like ADHD, as Akili Interactive is doing with its FDA-approved video game.

Dear readers, somehow, we’ve made it to the final day of 2020. How are you feeling? I’m awash with emotion reflecting on this roller coaster of a year. It’s a year that’s brought so much joy and sorrow – professionally and personally – for so many. 

As we head in to 2021, the healthcare team here at Business Insider is here to guide you through all of the happenings in the industry. But before we do, I wanted to reflect on some of the stories I’m most proud of from our team, which has grown so much since the first week of January when Zach Tracer and I were a team of two blogging away about healthcare.

This year, I’m grateful for smart analysis, reporting that broke news, and – most especially – a team big enough for a few five-reporter bylines. 

Here are some of the stories we’re most proud of from the year – arranged chronologically for a reminder of just how much has transpired in the past year

With that, I hope you all have a Happy New Year! See you in 2021. 

– Lydia
