Three years ago, Oak HC/FT spun out of the venerable Oak Investment Partners to raised a $500 million fund dedicated to investing in healthcare and financial technology start-ups.
Managing Partner Annie Lamont told Breaking Health that the new effort reflected “an amazing time of transformation for both industries. You’re talking about a combined 30% of the GDP.”
Oak HC/FT built a portfolio of at least 17 companies including past guest on the Breaking Health Podcast, Quartet.
This week, reports say Oak HC/FT is at it again, seeking a second $500 million fund with a hard cap at $600 million.
The news presented an opportunity to revisit our conversation with Lamont at our Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit back in November.
In the interview, Lamont revisits Oak HC/FT’s origins and reveals where she sees digital technology bringing meaningful change to healthcare.
