Bright Health




Minneapolis-based Bright Health has raised more than $1.5 billion in financing, a staggering statistic for a Minnesota company. The company’s health plan is now available in 13 states. G. Mike Mikan was tapped as CEO in April. He had previously served as interim CEO for Best Buy during bumpy times in 2012; most recently he led Shot-Rock Capital, a Minneapolis-based private equity firm. Mikan is looking to expand the company into new markets, but he also wants to add products like the employer-sponsored plan Bright Health rolled out this year: “Right now, we are focused on accelerating our strategic growth and expanding and diversifying our business.”
