About us: 

We’re on a mission to fundamentally transform mental healthcare accessibility. Grow Therapy empowers therapists to launch and grow thriving insurance-accepting private practices. We’re creating game-changing technology to build America’s biggest behavioral healthcare group and ensure that anyone can afford quality mental healthcare. Following the mass increase in depression and anxiety, the need for accessibility is more important than ever.

To make our vision for mental healthcare a reality, we’re building a team of entrepreneurs and mission-driven go-getters. Our founders come from Harvard Medical School, Stripe, and Blackstone, and are champions of balancing bold ambitions with a culture that promotes holistic well-being. Since launching in 2020, Grow has raised over $90M from top VCs and angel investors, including TCV, Transformation Capital, SignalFire, Village Global, CoFound, and leaders of Oscar, Nurx, Quartet, Airbnb, and Blackstone.

An Insider's view of Grow Therapy

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our leadership team creates a culture where your voice is heard and your impact is felt. I was scared to work for a startup, but couldn't ask for a better environment: mental health mornings, fun coworkers, flexible PTO, mission-centricity… It all adds up to a really positive working environment that makes going to work engaging and fun.


Provider Growth Lead

What projects are you most excited about?

Since Grow touches the full clinical path, from client intake to claim submissions, we have a wide surface area to rethink everything for our providers and clients. It’s really exciting to essentially redefine the entire behavioral health experience through technology.
