In the wake of the June 2022 U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, Maven Clinic—a platform that connects 15 million people to women- and family-focused medical providers ranging from fertility specialists to sleep coaches—saw a 67% increase in inquiries from companies looking to support their employees. Companies use Maven to reimburse employees who must travel for care (abortion-related or otherwise), and Maven advocates advise members on everything from their insurance coverage to handling an unplanned pregnancy. In November, CEO Kate Ryder raised $90 million at a $1.3 billion valuation, making Maven the highest-valued women’s health startup. The platform is also available to Medicaid beneficiaries in five states and counting, Ryder says, in hopes of connecting more people to quality care.
