At Grow, we believe Americas mental healthcare system is broken. Most independent providers wont accept insurance because of the significant administrative burden. Meanwhile, patients are struggling to find quality care that is both affordable and convenient. With rates of anxiety and depression up 250% since March 2020, this problem is more relevant than ever.
Grow is on a mission to make quality mental healthcare accessible and affordable across the country. We do this two-fold: first by dramatically simplifying the process for independent providers to launch insurance-accepting practices; second by enabling patients to more effectively find an in-network dedicated practitioner.
Since launching in July 2020, Grow has already received backing from top VCs and angel investors, including leaders of Village Global, Airbnb, Nurx, PatientPing, and Blackstone. Our founding team comes from Harvard Medical School, Google, Stripe, and Blackstone, and were excited to expand the team and continue onboarding providers from our 200+ (and growing!) waitlist.
