Even as the year winds down, we’re fortunate to see our growth on the rise. Last month, we announced news of a strategic investment from Aflac Corporate Ventures, the corporate ventures arm of Aflac, the leading provider of supplemental insurance in the U.S. and Japan. Although this investment marks the latest of several, this partnership represents a special milestone for our business as our first-ever capital raise from another Georgia-based company. In addition to our shared interest in supporting people all throughout their health journeys, Aflac and Sharecare both share a firm commitment to improving health in our Georgia communities, as well as others around the world.
With this latest investment, our funding total has exceeded $425 million to date, signifying tremendous growth for our business. A few days after this announcement, this was further demonstrated when we were recognized by Deloitte for our growth and innovation as a leader among tech companies for the third consecutive year. In Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, Sharecare ranked No. 425 among the 500 fastest growing tech companies in North America in 2019. Each year, the Fast 500 Awards honor companies that “define the cutting edge; transform the way we do business; combine technological innovation, entrepreneurship, and rapid growth; and disrupt the technology industry.” We couldn’t be more proud to be honored yet again and celebrate these milestones with the partners and employees who are marking them happen.
