Founded just over a year ago as an online catalog of personal protective equipment, bttn says it now operates as a marketplace that provides more than 2.5 million products across several healthcare categories to professionals and long-term care facilities.

Bttn launched in March 2021 to help meet the demand from health care professionals and facilities for pandemic-related personal protective equipment, or PPE. The company says it now has more than 7,000 customers and offers more than 2.5 million products from such brand manufacturers as 3M, Abbott, Cardinal Health and Medtronic.

Now bttn, which is on the web at, is primed for further growth after receiving $20 million in funding last week. That brings its valuation to $110 million, the company says.

“Bttn was founded with the mission to deliver a modern, digital approach to buying medical supplies, ultimately meeting a much-desired need in this highly antiquated market,” says JT Garwood, CEO. He co-founded bttn with Jack Miller, the head of product. “The Series A investment will help us scale and accelerate growth.”

The funding was led by Tiger Global, with participation by prior investor Fuse.


In April, bttn added eight distribution and fulfillment centers to its supply chain. That helped bring its average order delivery time to within three days, the company says.

Bttn says it specializes in serving “alternate-site” health care providers that operate outside of hospitals, including dermatologists, dentists, physicians and professionals at long-term care facilities.
