Eating disorder telehealth startup Equip has secured $35 million in new funding, according to a recent securities filing. The funding round, disclosed on April 11, marks a significant milestone for the San Diego-based company as it continues to expand its innovative approach to treating eating disorders. The startup has now raised over $95 million in total. Equip Health didn’t comment and didn’t provide further details about the funding.

Backed by prominent investors such as Optum Ventures, Tiger Global, and General Catalyst, Equip Health has emerged as a leading provider of virtual eating disorder treatment services. The recent funding round represents an amendment rather than a new notice, with the date of first sale listed as June 27, 2023.

Equip’s unique approach to eating disorder treatment revolves around providing virtual appointments with a multidisciplinary team. This team consists of a therapist, a doctor, a dietitian, a family mentor, and a peer mentor, offering comprehensive support tailored to each patient’s needs. As the demand for accessible and effective eating disorder treatment continues to grow, Equip remains at the forefront of innovation in telehealth services. With the latest funding infusion, the company is well-positioned to further expand its reach and impact, helping individuals struggling with eating disorders receive the care and support they need, regardless of their location.
