Solv, a startup touting a same-day dating network, recently raised $ 45 million in funding. The San Francisco-based startup creates software to help healthcare providers plan, enroll, and ensure pricing transparency.
Corner Ventures and Acrew Capital led Series C. Acrew is a returning investor, having previously led Series B of Solv last year.
Solv plans to use the funds to expand its network of healthcare providers. The startup claims that 100 million people currently live within five minutes of a same-day date.
Most of the practices in the Solv network are emergency care, including pediatric emergency care. The startup is also connecting patients to telehealth appointments, Covid-19 tests and vaccines.
Theresia Gouw, founding partner of Acrew Capital who is also on the startup’s board of directors, said Solv saw its business accelerate during the pandemic, as more people sought virtual care and rapid tests.
âJust as the financial crisis has changed consumer expectations and led to innovation in fintech, we are seeing the same trends in healthcare due to the Covid-19 pandemic,â said Heather Fernandez, CEO of Solv, in a press release. âBy putting patients first, both sides of the healthcare system benefit, and we can bring the industry closer to the future that we are working to build. “
Fernandez, former vice president and general manager of business services at Trulia, co-founded the startup in 2016. Several other Trulia executives, including his former CTO, are also part of the Solv team.
