Investing in Diverse Local Communities

Case Study

As part of our commitment to building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive world together with our portfolio companies, we look to invest in companies that find and develop talent from within local, underserved communities. Enhance Health has set the standard by hiring over 600 full-time positions (and counting) at their South Florida headquarters, outside the traditional start-up tech hubs of Silicon Valley and New York City. Along with its mission to increase equitable access to health insurance for millions of Americans, Enhance Health’s rapid success has proven it’s possible to do well by doing good.

The company launched in 2021 through partnership with and funding from Bain Capital to streamline the health insurance enrollment process. In under two years, Enhance Health has built its corporate headquarters in Sunrise, Florida, opened a customer service center down the road in Coral Springs, and hired hundreds of employees—almost 40% women and over 50% people of color. As the team continues to expand, we’re working closely with company leaders to promote diversity across key executive positions and the board of directors.

Enhance Health’s commitment to health equity is embedded into its offering. The company’s team of health insurance experts leverage digital technologies and a concierge experience to simplify what is often a time-consuming, confusing process. With Enhance Health, eligible seniors can more easily find the right Medicare plans, people who no longer qualify for Medicaid can enroll in ACA health plans, and hundreds of thousands of uninsured Americans are finally able to access health insurance. Enhance Health is helping ensure that quality healthcare remains available to everyone.
