Sword Health raises $130 million and its valuation soars to $3 billion

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Sword Health, an AI-powered virtual physical therapy startup, has raised $30 million and let employees sell $100 million worth of equity to new and existing investors, including Khosla Ventures. The round brings the nine-year-old company’s valuation to $3 billion, a 50% increase from the $2 billion value it garnered in its Series D in November 2021.

‘It’s a very intense environment: long hours and high expectations. We wanted to reward our team, especially our early employees,’ he said.

Sword didn’t need the influx of capital because it’s forecasted to be profitable by the end of the year, Bento said. However, he liked the signal an updated valuation would send during the tough fundraising conditions of 2024.  

‘No one really believes in the valuations of 2021 given how irrational the market was,’ Bento said. While most employees know that the company is doing well, Sword’s clients, who include employers and health plans of Fortune 500 companies, had no clear way of gauging the company’s progress. ‘We wanted to showcase our growth, and valuation is one indicator of that.’

The company won’t use the $30 million for operations. ‘It’s going to be in the bank, generating nice interest,’ Bento said.

The latest primary round brings Swords’ total funding to $340 million. In addition to Khosla Ventures, the company’s investors include General Catalyst, BOND, Founders Fund, and others. 

Bento also has a goal of an IPO for Sword. If the company grows as expected and the macroeconomic environment is favorable, it could potentially list in 2025 but the company is not committed to a specific timeline, Bento said.  

In the meantime, the company is beefing up its AI. It is introducing a human-like voice for its genAI, named Phoenix, to its musculoskeletal therapy and women’s pelvic health care therapy. Phoenix powers all patient interactions and Sword’s virtual therapists. ‘It’s the last piece of the puzzle that makes Phoenix much more engaging,’ Bento said.
