Catch, once a health and retirement benefits company for gig workers and self-employed individuals, reemerged this week under new management after being shuttered in March by its original co-founders. The new owners are relaunching the company in time for open enrollment starting November 1, but without the retirement benefits piece. The company just offers health, dental and vision insurance.
“We were really shocked when we saw that Catch was shutting down,” Irish told TechCrunch. “We obviously had been watching them from the sidelines just given that we were already entering the space. We reached out to Kristen and Andrew pretty much right away to say this is a really big need, that this audience should continue to have.”
