Who are we looking for?
We are looking for passionate entrepreneurs with an innovative product or service to improve primary health care in Africa. These entrepreneurs will need to convince the panellists on the sustainability and scalability of their business case. With the selected entrepreneurs, Amref Health Africa will enter into a mutual commitment and long-term relationship. This may concerns equity share.
To stimulate home-grown innovation, the Innovate for Life Fund targets entrepreneurs based in Sub Sahara Africa countries and/ or with Sub Sahara African origin. A health panel and selection committee will vet the applicants and their decision wil be final.
“As I travel across our vast continent, I am gratified to see Africa’s energetic and resourceful young entrepreneurs take up the challenge of creating innovative, practical solutions based on the latest technology to address the daily opportunities and challenges they and their communities face. By empowering them with access to knowledge, networks, collaborative partnerships and sources of capital, Amref Health Africa is harnessing this tremendous pool of talent towards attaining our vision of better health for all.” Mr Omari Issa Chair, Amref Health Africa International Board
