«A new market segment is emerging in digital health with the aim of making healthcare more inclusive and accessible for a traditionally overlooked population: the LGBTQ+ community. Prior to 2020, there weren’t any digital health companies in the U.S. exclusively focused on serving LGBTQ+ individuals that were backed by investors, according to Rock Health. That year, LGBTQ+ health startups came out of the gate and raised $9.6 million. Already in 2021, these LGBTQ+-focused companies have boosted their total funding to $39 million, according to Rock Health’s estimates. In line with the newness of this space, these funding raises have been limited to Seed and Series A rounds.»
