Betterleave Secures $2.4M for End-of-Life Care
Betterleave is a new integrative grief care system to treat the whole person—mind, body and soul
Austin-based Betterleave, a pioneering end-of-life care platform, has successfully raised $2.4 million in funding in a round led by Chingona Ventures, with participation from Bread and Butter Ventures, Vitalize VC, Wisdom Ventures Fund, and AARP. With over 30 million Americans involved in caring for adults, the platform's CEO, Cara McCarty Abbott, emphasizes the company's commitment to measurable impact while striking a balance between profitability and scalability.
Betterleave's comprehensive digital and clinical care solution addresses the pre-to-post-loss care gap, providing personalized journeys, access to care teams, and mental health providers for consumers. In-network with major insurers and currently operational in six states, the startup plans to utilize the funds for health assessments, digital check-ins, and expansion, aiming to be in 20 states by next year. Abbott envisions Betterleave as a catalyst for mental health advancements, particularly at the intersection of grief, loss, and clinical data, underscoring the company's goal to "move the needle" in this critical space. The overarching mission of Betterleave is clear: to lead the charge in transforming mental health, particularly in navigating the complexities of grief and loss through the lens of clinical data.
