Former Clover Health COO, Varsha Rao has been tapped to be the new CEO of birth control startup Nurx. Rao replaces Hans Gangeskar, Nurx’s co-founder and CEO since 2014.
Notable Quotes: “After being at Airbnb, a really mission-driven company, I couldn’t go back to something that wasn’t equally or more so and healthcare really inspired me. In terms of accessibility, I feel like [Nurx] is super important. We are really fortunate to live in a place where can access birth control and it can be more easily found but there are lots of parts of the country where physical access is challenging and costs can be a factor. To be able to break down barriers of access both physically and from an economic standpoint is hugely meaningful to me.” – Varsha Rao
