Oak HC/FT Publishes Second Annual Social Impact Report

February 22, 2024

Driving universal social good is a foundational element of Oak HC/FT. Through our connections with investors, entrepreneurs, patients and consumers, we continue to take seriously our role in generating positive outcomes and lasting solutions that benefit our stakeholders and the world.

We write our second annual letter with an increased understanding of the context of our global community. The shifting geopolitical, capital market and regulatory dynamics only underscore the importance we’ve placed on our greater social impact since the founding of Oak HC/FT.

Given our expertise across significant verticals, healthcare and financial technology, Oak HC/FT has the opportunity to connect our common threads to more meaningfully partner with entrepreneurs who similarly prioritize the impact of their solutions. We remain at the forefront of driving results that support the evolving models of our focus industries – including healthcare’s movement to value-based and virtual care, and fintech’s pressing need for fraud and risk prevention.

This year, we are proud to highlight four companies from our portfolio that serve as case studies for the results produced for patients and consumers alike. It’s our philosophy that enduring businesses create change through five levers – access, outcomes, cost, speed and friction – and these pillars establish the lens through which we seek opportunities for innovation and growth.

Within Oak HC/FT, we hold ourselves to high standards of conscientious engagements across the organization – from collecting and analyzing diversity and inclusion metrics from within our portfolio, to deeply vetting our many investment and executive partnerships.

As we approach the firm’s tenth anniversary and reflect on our decades of combined experience, we look forward to building on our accomplishments and pursuing the many opportunities ahead. However, to truly initiate life-changing improvements at scale, we remain steadfast in our commitment to the core principles upon which we’re built.

We thank you for your continued partnership and support.
