Rock Health Venture Capital Report
Rock Health is a respected Venture Capital fund dedicated to digital health. They’ve recently put out their Venture Capital Investment report for 2020 and there is a lot of great information there for those in this sector. In a nutshell, driven by a confluence of factors including the already strong upward trend in digital health and the COVID-19 pandemic, we are experiencing a boom period in digital health venture capital investment that doesn’t look like it is slowing down anytime soon.
