Archetype announces investment exit with Gennev following an acquisition by Unified Women’s Healthcare.
Gennev was acquired by Unified Women’s Healthcare. Unified, which serves the largest network of private practice women’s healthcare providers in the U.S., comes together with Gennev, the nation’s leading virtual menopause provider, to improve access to menopause-trained OB/GYNs, serving patients across 50 states.
First partnering in 2019, Gennev leveraged Archetype’s private equity investment fund and shared services platform, enabled by an 80+ person cross-functional team. Archetype supported Gennev in building its digital platform and provided resources to enable the company to grow and scale. Over the course of the Archetype Fund’s holding period, Gennev grew its revenue by 120%.
“When we launched Gennev in 2016, our goal was to leverage technology and clinical expertise to fill a significant unmet need and dramatically improve women’s lives,” said Jill Angelo, Gennev Founder and CEO. “The team at Archetype played a critical role in our early growth journey by providing access to capital as well as their extraordinary technology and product teams.”
Chetan Bagga, Archetype CEO and Chief Investment Officer commented, “Jill and her team have done a tremendous job of building a platform that meets the dynamic healthcare needs of women across every stage of menopause. We feel privileged to have played a role in Gennev’s growth journey, and we wish them the best in their partnership with Unified Women’s Healthcare.”
