The world as we know it is vastly different than it was when we founded Oak HC/FT over eight years ago. We’ve experienced various market cycles and geopolitical events, changing consumer preferences and rapid virtualization. Despite changing circumstances, one thing remains consistent: our mission to support exceptional entrepreneurs driving transformation across healthcare and fintech.
Our sector focus makes an impact on the economy at large, and as investors, it is our responsibility to act in the best interests of our limited partners as well as align ourselves with investments that positively impact the greater community. In our view, we see two immense opportunities:
- Increase access to quality care at reduced costs by enabling patients to receive better, affordable healthcare through virtual transformation, and
- Deliver efficiency, transparency and fairness to enterprises, SMBs and consumers as financial services evolve.
We are mindful of the collective impact that our investments have on environmental, social and corporate governance issues, and are committed to improving our investment strategy to address the defining issues of our time.
Our 80+ portfolio companies reflect our commitment to creating positive impact across the U.S. healthcare system and global fintech sector, improving outcomes for patients and hospital systems on one hand, and increasing financial wellness and driving economic activity on the other. We take immense pride in the fact that each and every one of our portfolio companies puts this mission into action, from companies like CareBridge and Unite Us on the healthcare side to Aplazo, Ethic and IMMO on the fintech side. These five companies particularly encapsulate Oak HC/FT’s impact – leveraging tech-enabled innovation to disrupt the status quo and address the pressing pain points across healthcare and fintech.
Driving social good is core to our identity. As we seek new opportunities and continue to strengthen the companies in our existing portfolio, we are committed to creating positive, lasting change across healthcare and fintech and the multiple constituents that our investments influence. To underscore this commitment, we’re proud to issue this inaugural Oak HC/FT Social Impact Report.
