o Chevy Chase-Based NEA Increases Investment in Stride Health

Chevy Chase, Md. -- New Enterprise Associates (NEA), the Chevy Chase-based venture capital firm, said on Tuesday it has increased its investment in San Francisco-based Stride Health, developer of a health insurance recommendation engine designed to connect independent workers to insurance plans. The investment was part of the company's new $23.5 million second round, led by F-Prime Capital Partners. Launched in 2014, Stride Health helps independent workers build a personal set of benefits tailored to their needs. In addition to a personalized health plan, the company helps workers predict out-of-pocket healthcare costs, lower the cost of prescription drugs and navigate complex insurance claims. "As individuals transition away from traditional 9-to-5 employment, we're removing the barriers to affordable, accessible benefits," said co-founder and CEO Noah Lang. NEA originally invested in the company's seed round in 2014.
