Catch is back

In March, Catch, a startup offering financial products and health insurance for the self-employed, announced that it is shutting down after 6-7 years in business and $18 million in funding.

Now, the startup is back under new management.

Alexa Irish and Laura Speyer, Catch’s co-CEOs, have acquired the company while bringing back the insurance component. Currently, Catch offers health, dental, and vision insurance.

“When Catch closed its personal payroll and retirement products weeks later, the outpouring of support from customers on social media was remarkable. Some offered to pay more for the service, while others suggested that the founders seek crowdfunding to keep the business afloat. We contacted Catch’s co-founders, and over the summer, we acquired the company. Since taking the reins at Catch, we’ve hit the ground running. We’ve caught up with former partners, reconnected with our members, and we’re zeroing in on insurance benefits, especially with the 2024 Open Enrollment period right around the corner. Today, we’re offering health, dental, and vision benefits, while exploring other products for the future.” – Catch.
