About Legacy


Legacy (YC S19) is a Series B startup focused on the fast-growing field of fertility and family planning. Founded at Harvard, the company has now raised almost $50M from leading investors like FirstMark Capital, Bain Capital Ventures, Section 32, Tribe Capital, and even celebrities like Justin Bieber, The Weeknd, and others. For context, we've closed 4 venture rounds in 2.5 years, in addition to our celebrity round of funding.

What we're doing

We are building a complete digital health hub for future fathers/parents. We aim to change the outdated view that fertility is a "women's issue" by creating an accessible, affordable product for men & people with sperm. This includes everything from a mail-in kit for sperm testing & sperm freezing, personalized sperm improvement products, tele-health, DNA fragmentation analysis, supplements, and more.

Why are we the leader?

The company was founded at Harvard by a team of healthcare and fertility experts. We obsess about talent density and have out-executed our competitors over the past few years. Beyond our D2C channel, we've also unlocked:

  1. Insurance (We cover over 10M individuals through insurance in NY and CA)
  2. Military (We serve the Navy SEALs & other SpecOps through exclusive programs)
  3. Employers (We work with the top fertility benefit providers like Progyny, Carrot, and Maven)

Tell me about the team

We're a team of under 50, extremely diverse (majority female, majority immigrants, strong LGBQTIA+ representation, age range of 25-65), and very values driven. Our 5 values are customer centricity, reliability, kindness, openness, and winning.
