New Funding Round Expands Access to Healthcare Savings
We’re proud to announce that Starship is officially expanding its offerings with $11 million raised from lead investor Valar Ventures.
At Starship, we believe that getting the benefits of a health savings account (HSA) should be virtually effortless with smart savings tools and automatic investing.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve officially secured a total of $11 million, led by Valar Ventures and including investors Broadhaven, Third Prime, and Clocktower. This investment will help us to keep building on this vision of a better, more accessible way for people to save, spend, and invest in their financial wellness and personal health.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Valar,” Starship CEO Sean Engelking explains. “This funding is going to directly fuel our expansion and reach, and we really couldn’t be more excited for what’s next.”
Our belief that healthcare saving and spending should be easy, fee-free, and mobile, extends itself directly to the contingent workforce. Starship is making portable health savings accounts available to drivers, delivery persons, and carriers who use the Uber app. Our partnership with Uber builds on our presence in the contingent workforce space, which includes our existing partnership with on-demand delivery pioneer, Postmates.
As Englelking explains: “The future of work is changing. So we’re changing with it, giving people access to their health savings from wherever, whenever, and in the most modern and simple way possible.”
