Colorado is health conscious state. It is never short on outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing and is even the birthplace of many health-focused food companies, making it the perfect headquarters for healthtech startups. Soon, Denver will be home to a new healthtech company.

Gov. Jared Polis’ office recently announced that Virta Health will relocate its headquarters from San Francisco to Denver.

Virta Health is a telehealth platform that helps treat people with type 2 diabetes without the need for medications or surgery. The platform offers care in the form of education and provides health coaches on a near 24/7 basis. According to the company, the type of care it provides can lead to lower blood sugar and weight loss.

Prior to selecting Denver as the site for its new headquarters, Virta Health ran a satellite office in the Mile High City. The location for its new headquarters has yet to be determined. According to a statement, Virta Health will spend the next few months looking over office locations for its almost 400 employees. 

The Denver headquarters will house Virta’s engineers, researchers, sales and account managers, coaches and clinicians.

“The technology and healthcare talent we have already assembled in Colorado provides a clear picture of the exciting growth potential we have in the region,” Sami Inkinen, Virta Health co-founder and CEO, said in a statement. “Colorado is a great place to live, with a spirit of innovation and people who are willing to tackle big challenges to change the world for the better. It’s an ideal setup for a mission-oriented company like Virta Health.”

The deal to bring Virta Health to Denver was a collaboration between Gov. Polis’ office, the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation and the global business development division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade. Per the deal, Virta will receive up to $6.9 million in performance-based job growth incentive tax credits over the next eight years for the potential creation of 902 local jobs, according to the Denver Business Journal.

Virta Health is a tech unicorn that last year doubled its valuation in just five months following a $133 million Series E round.
