Carbon Health was founded in 2015 by Caesar Djavaherian, Eren Bali, Greg Burrell, Pablo Stanley, and Tom Berry. According to a 2021 article in the Silicon Valley Business Journal, Carbon Health "reportedly was in talks with a blank check company, but has decided to do a traditional IPO instead." These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.
Carbon Health describes itself as "a human-centered, tech-enabled healthcare company." The company provides both in-person primary care and telemedicine. Since 2018, Carbon Health has acquired Direct Urgent Care, Steady Health, and Alertive Healthcare. The company has brought in over $500 million in funding from investors including Lux Capital, Sand Hill Angels, Nolan Arenado, Intersect Capital, and Dragoneer Investment Group. The most recent round of funding was led by The Blackstone Group and brought in $350 million. The company currently has a post-money valuation of $3.3 billion.
