UpLift Raises $10.7M in Series A Funding


UpLift, a NYC-based behavioral health company, raised $10.7M in Series A funding.

The round, which brought the total amount to $22M, was led by Ballast Point Ventures with participation from Kapor Capital, Front Porch Ventures and B Capital.

Founded in 2020 by CEO Kyle Talcott, UpLift is an omnichannel behavioral health network enabling whole person value-based care through the integration of mental and physical health. Through purpose-built software, the company currently delivers evidence-based psychotherapy and psychiatry through a team-based care model to individuals 13 years and older, as well as to couples and families, in 4 states and the District of Columbia. Patients can receive their personalized provider matches at joinuplift.co and book their first appointment online. UpLift accepts insurance payment from most major commercial, Medicare and Medicaid health plans, including through national agreements with UnitedHealthcare, Aetna, and Cigna.

It partners with national and regional health insurance plans to deliver psychotherapy and psychiatry.

The company intends to use the funds to further expand access to its team-based behavioral healthcare model, enabling thousands of behavioral healthcare providers to accept insurance payments and help patients match with the right team of providers, based on their clinical and non-clinical needs, as well to expand into additional states.

UpLift currently serves patients in the District of Columbia (D.C.), Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, and Virginia.
