Mayo Clinic Ventures helps launch virtual fertility startup with $5.4M funding round

Mayo Clinic Ventures is among the investors in a $5.4 million funding round launching virtual fertility startup Turtle Health into eight states, a company spokesperson emailed Becker's.

The startup provides at-home fertility tests and recently partnered with Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic, whose in vitro fertilization specialists are offering Turtle Health's tools to their patients. 

"After the challenges of having a successful pregnancy, I got my fertility tested at an IVF clinic," Turtle Health CEO and founder Amy Zwanziger said in a statement. "At the time, I was leading digital clinical trials for Sanofi, and was frustrated to see how analog fertility evaluation was — the choices were between incomplete at-home testing or invasive and expensive in-clinic options. I wanted to create something that I could trust, and use myself."

The investment round was led by Switch Ventures.

The funding news was first reported Dec. 6 by Axios.
