NEW YORK, May 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Progyny, the leading fertility benefits company, today announced that it was named #13 on CNBC’s fifth annual Disruptor 50 List. The rapidly growing company secured its spot alongside companies such as Airbnb, Lyft, and WeWork.

The Disruptor 50 is an annual list of private companies that are shaking up the landscape and threatening the status quo in their respective industries. CNBC selects companies from a list of hundreds nominated by venture capitalists, industry analysts, and beat reporters. Disruptor 50 companies are widely regarded as poised for substantial growth.

Progyny’s employer offering is a cutting-edge women’s health benefit that supports fertility preservation and comprehensive family building. The program includes fertility benefits, such as IVF and egg freezing, and also support for individuals needing to build their families through surrogacy and adoption. Progyny’s fertility benefits combine service, science and data to optimize the clinical outcomes of fertility treatments, including increased IVF success, reduced time to pregnancy, and a reduced rate of multiples (twins), which is often a key driver of high-risk obstetric and NICU costs. Employer’s utilizing Progyny’s programs promote a workplace culture of supporting women and families. Progyny’s vision is to ensure that anyone who wants to have a child, can have one. 

“Today is a proud day for Progyny. For the past year and a half, Progyny’s business has grown rapidly as more and more large employers are looking to adopt fertility benefits in order to attract and retain top talent, show appreciation for their female workforce, and highlight the importance of family building as a core value for their organizations,” said David Schlanger, Progyny CEO. “This accolade from CNBC further substantiates the interest in the fertility industry as a whole and our unique way of helping employees navigate this often opaque yet important benefit.”
