With existing frontier and emerging technologies such as AI/ML, Blockchain, Medical Internet of Things (IoT) and factoring AI, Climate and Gender (aligned to the SDGs), we are aiming for great returns and long term sustainable positive impact outcomes.

Digital Health

Digital health startups develop software to solve a healthcare challenge through digital channels. These digital health solutions are at the convergence of health and tech and aim to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes and to make medicine more personalized and precise.. These tend not to be hardware or physical assets. Examples of such are Fintech for healthcare, insuretech,  telemedicine, EHR/EMR, digital therapeutics etc.


Medical technologies are products or solutions (ideally with services) used to save and improve people’s lives, by preventing, diagnosing, monitoring, treating and caring for diseases (- at every phase of the patient pathway). Startups in this space are supported to secure funding for research, development, and commercialization of both locally designed, manufactured and assembled, and licensed medical devices. Diagnosis technologies include stethoscopes, hypodermic needles, blood pressure cuffs among others

Biotech / Techbio

Biotech or traditional biotech views technology as a tool applied to biological problems, involving harnessing cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve people’s health and lives. 

TechBio integrates cutting-edge technologies, like AI, big data analytics, nanotechnology, and robotics, with biological sciences to develop innovative solutions. TechBio positions technology as the primary catalyst for biological innovation

Assistive Technologies & Accessibility

Assistive Technologies (AT) are services or products that can range from physical products to digital solutions such as speech recognition or time management software and captioning.  These are any item, piece of equipment, software program, or product system that is used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of persons with disabilities. It helps people who have difficulty speaking, typing, writing, remembering, pointing, seeing, hearing, learning, walking, and many other things. Different disabilities require different assistive technologies. Examples include wheelchairs, glasses, prosthetic limbs, white canes, and hearing aids. AT is more and more focused on a general Accessibility for all.

Nutrition & Wellness

Nutrition is a cornerstone of well-being, playing a vital role in maintaining a healthy society. We are dedicated to supporting solutions that integrate healthcare seamlessly with nutritional wellness. Our approach involves collaborating with visionary founders and startups committed to reshaping the landscape of nutrition and well-being.

In the realm of digital health, we actively back startups developing solutions for personalized nutrition, offering tools like customized diet plans and wellness coaching. We believe in the power of data-driven insights to guide individuals toward optimal nutrition. Our commitment extends to supporting medtech innovations that contribute to nutritional well-being, encompassing diagnostic tools and monitoring devices that empower individuals to manage dietary conditions effectively.


Women and girls represent more than 50% of Africa’s population, with a median age of 18 years old. With this burgeoning population and increasing smartphone penetration, there is a growing demand for accessible and innovative healthcare solutions tailored to women and girl’s needs. 

By supporting Femtech startups with coaching, mentoring and investment capital, we can foster the development of scalable and sustainable solutions that tackle issues such as maternal mortality, reproductive health, and access to healthcare services. Furthermore, investing in Femtech not only has the potential to improve health outcomes but also to drive economic growth and empowerment by creating employment opportunities and fostering entrepreneurship among women and preparing girls for increased economic engagement.
