Reaching the Underserved
Our portfolio companies are breaking down barriers for populations that are underserved—whether through primary health services to low-income patients in Kenya or culturally competent care for people of color in the US.

Theory of Change
We don’t want to just reach lives, we want to improve them… and do this through sustainable business models that can scale and grow to impact millions of patients and inspire other innovators around the world.

We take a rigorous approach to assess the potential impact of companies during diligence, and then monitor and encourage performance in the portfolio—focusing on three key dimensions of impact:

  • Scale – the number of patients reached or healthcare workers supported
  • Access – creating new opportunities for populations that are underserved
  • Depth – the degree of improvement to health outcomes

    • Patients Reached: The number of lives directly impacted by the innovative healthcare services and products of our portfolio companies, since the time of our investment.
    • Healthcare Workers Supported: Including through new jobs, resources, training and improvements to care delivery from our portfolio companies. It is estimated these healthcare workers have in turn reached more than 10 million patients and customers.
    • Investment in LMICs: With a focus on health equity globally, the majority of our investment portfolio supports companies in low- and middle-income countries, as well as low-resource settings of high-income countries like the US.
    • Impact Entrepreneurs Funded: In addition to our core investments, we have provided funding to support early-stage healthcare impact entrepreneurs through prize competitions, fellowships, accelerators, and incubators.
