10. Bright Health

 As with many entities in the startup world, Bright Health was founded in order to address the fundamental issues at the heart of a big industry, in this case, health insurance. Thus, the company endeavours to offer users a simplified, streamlined and less complicated experience.

Taking the effort away from policyholders so that they can focus on their health instead of their insurance, Bright Health closely liaises with its carefully sourced selection of care partners (doctors, clinics, hospitals, etc) in order to deliver a tailored, efficient and easy point of access for its clients. Currently operating in 22 markets within 12 US states, the company attained unicorn status in December 2019 when it secured $635mn in a single financing round, thus pushing it past the $1bn mark.
