1 Mins read

Pishon Health, a pioneering healthcare innovation hub, has unveiled its highly anticipated Social Innovation Incubator program. This ambitious 12-week incubator is poised to catalyze the next wave of technological solutions tailored to address the continent’s most pressing healthcare challenges.

With the African health tech market projected to surpass a staggering $11 billion by 2025, the demand for locally-relevant innovations has never been greater. Recognizing this pressing need, Pishon Health’s incubator is designed to empower African innovators, equipping them with the tools, mentorship, and potential funding required to turn their visionary concepts into tangible, impactful realities.

Africa faces significant healthcare challenges, but the continent is also brimming with talented innovators developing tailor-made solutions. Our incubator program bridges this gap, nurturing these innovations and empowering them to reach their full potential,” Mopelola Lauretta Ajegbile, Founder of Pishon Health, said.

Through the incubator, participants will gain access to a comprehensive suite of resources, including mentorship from seasoned professionals in healthcare and social entrepreneurship, advisory services, and potential capital investments of up to $100,000. This holistic support structure aims to address the complexities involved in developing and scaling locally-relevant solutions, driving real-world impact across communities.

Moreover, the incubator fosters a lasting community of collaboration and growth, connecting participants with a network of alumni for ongoing support and knowledge exchange.

Pishon Health’s Social Innovation Incubator welcomes early-stage innovators working across various health tech domains, including communicable diseases, healthcare workforce shortages, non-communicable diseases, climate change and health impacts, mental health, medical product development, maternal and child health, and health data management.

With its inaugural cohort set to commence in July, Pishon Health’s incubator promises to ignite a transformative movement in African healthcare, empowering local innovators to shape a healthier and more prosperous future for the entire continent.
