Carrot Fertility Named to CNBC's List of 100 Barrier-Breaking Startups

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- Carrot, a fertility benefits solution that partners with modern companies to expand fertility coverage for employees, today announced it has been named to CNBC's second annual Upstart list. The CNBC Upstart 100 showcases technology-driven startups that are experiencing rapid growth due to innovative products, apps, tools or services. Carrot was chosen among thousands of nominations nationwide. Carrot is reinventing what fertility coverage means, who has access to it, and how they can utilize it. The San Francisco-based company helps employees access the care they need, such as egg freezing, in-vitro fertilization, fertility diagnoses and more, regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status. 

Employees use Carrot's software to personalize a fertility plan, chat with fertility experts, order medications, and access unique content.



"Fertility care is a fundamental part of human health for both men and women, and we're gratified to see greater acceptance and recognition of this important idea. Carrot customers are the true pioneers in this space, pushing the boundaries forward for millions of people who receive employer-sponsored health coverage at work," said Tammy Sun, CEO and founder of Carrot. "HR leaders are the real upstarts, and Carrot is honored to be working with many of the leading employers in America to deliver on our shared mission of fertility care for all."

Carrot's mission is fertility for all. Traditional coverage products limit access to fertility care unless there has been a medical diagnosis of infertility. This model is outdated and excludes far too many people, such as females who want to preserve fertility through egg freezing, LGBTQIA+ couples who use fertility treatments for family-forming, and transgender individuals who seek to preserve future fertility options. With Carrot, companies provide equal access to fertility coverage regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or marital status.

Since its inaugural list in 2017, the CNBC Upstart list has expanded from honoring 25 to now 100 companies in nearly every sector.
