Online Birth Control Startup The Pill Club Raises $51 Million
The Pill Club, an online birth control prescription and delivery service in the United States, secured $51 million in Series B funding, bringing its total funding to $67 million to date. The round was led by VMG, with participation from new investors GV (formerly Google Ventures), ACME Capital, and existing investors Base10 and Shasta Ventures.
The Pill Club’s mission is to place healthcare back into the hands of women through education, options and access by combining the privacy of telemedicine with the ownership of a pharmacy to ensure women get the right prescription from the comfort of their own homes. Currently offering 100 brands of the birth control pill, NuvaRing®, emergency contraceptives, and female condoms, The Pill Club is actively working on expanding its offerings to address the broader $20 billion women’s health market.
The Pill Club plans to use the funds to further automate operations and expand prescription services, as well as expand its education services. The company also aims to grow its workforce by 50 percent over the next year.
