INVESTMENT FOCUS

Most big ideas are designed to be just that: ideas. We focus on the others.

INVESTMENT CRITERIA & STRATEGY

We help companies capitalize on today’s market opportunities in healthcare and insurance with a proprietary hands-on approach and proven operational frameworks. Empactful’s team seeks and invests in software and technology-enabled services companies that are delivering disruptive innovation in the healthcare and insurance verticals.  Potential investments will be high growth businesses that have achieved or can attain break-even / profitability at $8 million to $12 million in revenues.  While the capital investments we make are important to developing and growing businesses, our operational assistance and advice is pivotal to milestone execution, risk mitigation, and overall success. Our philosophy relies on four key tenets:

ENHANCED PERSPECTIVE, HIGHER EQ FOR BUILDING BUSINESSES WITH ENTREPRENEURS, AND A KNACK FOR SEEING THE FOREST THROUGH THE TREES

DEEP EXPERIENCE, RELATIONSHIPS AND subject matter expertise in digital health and insurtech markets and IN BUILDING EARLY AND GROWTH-STAGE COMPANIES

A PROVEN VALUE CREATION MODEL, VALIDATED BY SUCCESSFUL COMPANY EXPERIENCES AND GROWTH FRAMEWORKS TAILORED TO EACH BUSINESS

DISRUPTION DOESN’T RESPECT GEOGRAPHY, WE BELIEVE GREAT COMPANIES ARE BEING BUILT nationwide AND WE HAVE A NATIONAL COVERAGE MODEL TO SUPPORT MARKETS UNDERSERVED BY VENTURE CAPITAL

WHY HEALTHCARE?

The industry faces a period of unprecedented disruption and transformation:

  • Reimbursement model transition from fee for service to fee for value (focused on cost and quality outcomes)
  • All purchasers of healthcare (government, employers and consumers) looking to curb spending as it has reached unsustainable level and projected to grow >70% over next 10 years
  • The core pillars and key enablers of population health include advanced “high performance” provider networks, care and utilization management/coordination, and actuarial/underwriting capabilities
  • As reimbursement models and cost reduction challenges increase in complexity, healthcare organizations need more advanced technology solutions to enable their business model transformation
  • Many incumbent solution providers in healthcare aren’t prepared to innovate, leaving plenty of opportunity for those who seek it – these disruptive businesses are Empactful’s investment focus.
