ianacare Raises $12.1M in Series A Funding


ianacare, a Boston, MA-based provider of comprehensive, tech-enabled caregiver support through employers and health plans, raised $12.1m in Series A funding.

The round was led by Greycroft with participation from 8VC, SemperVirensVC, Able Partners, and Brown Alumni Group, along with follow-on investments from existing investors Slow, Founder Collective, Indicator Ventures, Entree Capital, Cue Ball, Service Provider Capital, and AARP. As part of the raise, Greycroft partner Ellie Wheeler will join the ianacare board.

The company intends to use the funds to scale the internal team, to onboard several new employer and healthcare partners in 2022 and 2023, and to triple in size with open positions across Sales, Client Success, Marketing, and Product.

Led by Jessica Kim, CEO, and Steven Lee, COO, ianacare partners with employers and health plans to offer its scalable enterprise solution as a benefit to working caregivers. The solution gives family caregivers the ability to communicate and coordinate care across a personal team of friends and family, as well as access expert content, navigate local resources, and connect with employee benefits already available to them. Additionally, it includes unlimited access to a caregiver coach and supportive community.

Launched in March 2021, the enterprise solution covers more than 400,000 lives through existing partnerships with employers like Anthem, Inc., the second-largest healthcare provider in the US. Looking ahead to 2022, ianacare is set to launch with some of the nation’s largest employers.
