digital health device funding

Many digital health technology entrepreneurs struggle to attract start-up financing and this can inhibit their ability to grow. At best they may underperform their full potential; at worst they may stagnate, or fail. This challenge is even greater in many African regions where the enabling environment for innovation is nascent and fragmented.

$200,000 Innovative Medical Device Challenge

Villgro Kenya is a health-focused incubator offering mentoring, funding and access to networks for startups that address the lack of access to quality and affordable health services & technologies in low-income populations across East Africa.

Villgro is now looking for up to 10 innovative, tech-enabled medical device startups that have the potential to scale delivery of quality and affordable health services across Africa. Each company will receive at least US$20,000 in:

  • Mentorship through a structured, market focused incubation plan.
  • Funding to address the most significant capital injection needs of the business.
  • Networks of product experts, downstream investors, and strategic partners.

Earlier this year, Villgro Kenya helped raise US$735,000 in seed funding for Ilara Health, which makes common diagnostics accessible and affordable to African who struggle to access even basic blood tests.
