Healthy investment: Strategic partnership and $25M Series B accelerate Brave Care expansion plans

It wasn’t that long ago that Brave Care was a single clinic in Portland and a scrappy crew of startup types working to reinvent urgent pediatric. Fast forward to today and they’ve got a new infusion of $25 million and a strategic partnership with Pediatrix that promises to take the concept national more efficiently.

Using Portland startup Subfund to give you more context on Portland startups

I always believe that the best way to understand a startup’s product is to actually use the startup’s product. I know. Call me crazy. So ever since I became aware of Portland’s Subfund, I’ve been scratching my head for ways to put it into practice. And apparently all of that head scratching shook something loose. Because I just came up with a new experiment.

Portland startup Brave Care expands to Austin, Beaverton, and North Carolina… not necessarily in that order

Portland seems to have a knack for rethinking healthcare. Back when I first started in startups around here, it was the concept of Electronic Medical Records. Then came concepts like Zoom Care. Now, Brave Care is rethinking pediatric care. And they’re thinking much bigger than simply Portland.

Portland’s Sellwood neighborhood is now helping kids be more Brave

Speaking of Oregon Y Combinator alums… a recent YC alum is expanding their service area — and physical footprint — here in Portland by opening a second location for their pediatric care offerings. That’s right. Brave Care has a location in Sellwood, now.

Which eight startups from Oregon are among the 1000+ Y Combinator alums?

What do you do when you have insomnia? Well, of course you… What’s that? Oh. Wait what? Oh yeah. That’s a good idea. Damn. But I meant that you could also… Huh? Oh. Oh man. Yeah. That’s super solid. Truly. Shoot. I totally should have thought of that. What I meant to say was — maybe I should rephrase — what do I do when I have insomnia? That’s right. I spend time sifting through the new Y Combinator alum database to figure out which Oregon companies have been through the most preeminent of startup accelerator programs. Duh.

Doing things differently: Portland startup Brave Care balances tradition and innovation… on a variety of fronts

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Darius Monsef. And a lot of that is because I’ve been lucky to watch his efforts and growth over a dozen years or so. And with him now on the third Portland startup that he’s cofounded, I continue to be impressed with the maturity and perspective his significant startup experience — both within Portland and beyond — has wrought.

A little help for a Portland startup family? All it takes is a swab

You probably haven’t met Kat and Asa Miller. They’re very private folks. So it wouldn’t surprise me if their names don’t ring any bells. I was lucky enough to meet Asa early in the days of mobile in Portland. Back when PIE was still a coworking space and community event space. He was unassuming. And ridiculously talented. Like many Portland folks.

Seattle visits Portland: Create33 and Founders’ Co-op are making a road trip

Okay. Maybe today isn’t the best day to be writing about Seattle and Portland. (Sorry, Flounders.) But earlier today, I had the opportunity to post about early stage Seattle fund Founders’ Co-op investing in Portland’s Brave Care. So it seemed to be the perfect time to do a “speaking of Founders’ Co-op…” sort of post.

Urgent care for Portland kids is getting more Brave… and startuppy

While some startup communities seem obsessed with the random application of technology, I’ve always been impressed with the Portland startup community’s continued interest in applying technology in ways that make people’s lives better. One of those areas — for decades — has been healthcare. And now, there’s a new player in that realm, specifically around urgent care for kids. Meet Brave Care.
