Today, fertility technologies to support modern families are better than ever, but affordability stands in the way of accessibility. Prohibitive out-of-pocket costs and the limited scope of employer-sponsored fertility benefits severely restricts access (and hope) for the millions of individuals and couples who want to have children. While the fertility market is growing, unlocking affordability is the key to transforming and democratizing the space. This opportunity, coupled with my own personal fertility journey, made me hungry to fund a company focused on expanding financial access to fertility care for all people.

Enter Carrot. Tammy Sun and the team at Carrot believe that every human being should have the ability to preserve or pursue the decision to bring children into their lives. I met with Tammy in 2016 shortly after she left Evernote and inspired to launch Carrot following her own frustrating and expensive experience with fertility preservation. I was so aligned with her vision and impressed by her early execution that I led Carrot’s seed round of financing in August 2017. Today, I’m thrilled to share news of their Series A led by CRV.
