Our Mission

At Abaka, people come first. We founded Abaka to make navigating, understanding, and paying for healthcare simpler, putting patients in control.

The Abaka Difference

We bring together industry-changing technology with healthcare experience. Our team is comprised of engineers and product experts from Google, Microsoft, and Meetup. We have a track record of successful exits, including a health care exit that relied on close partnerships with payers and providers. We have experience building and launching products at scale to millions of users, and together, we have leveraged our diverse base to strengthen patient-centered care through technology.
