StartUp Health’s 2020 Midyear Insights Report: A Conversation With Jonah Comstock



StartUp Health co-founder Unity Stoakes and editor in chief Logan Plaster talk health innovation funding trends with HIMSS Media editor-in-chief Jonah Comstock, a health tech journalist who has been covering the health innovation funding landscape for more than a decade. StartUp Health released its quarterly Insights report on July 1, 2020. The report confirmed that health innovation funding has remained on a strong upward trajectory despite of the market uncertainties created by the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, with $4.2B raised in Q2 2020, we find ourselves closing out the most-funded six-month period on record. In this episode, Comstock, Stoakes and Plaster discuss the market forces behind this apparent optimism, the importance of a global perspective on health innovation, and whether the current positive trend is likely to continue through the rest of 2020.
