Health 10x

Could your health start-up transform lives in developing countries?

Health 10x is an accelerator program addressing a significant global health challenge – the rise of non-communicable diseases (NCD) in under-served markets.

The challenge of NCDs in emerging and low-to-middle-countries has been large unaddressed by governments and the global health finance community. This is creating rapidly growing markets and opportunities for private companies and entrepreneurs.

Health 10x helps start-ups seize these opportunities and tackle one of the most pressing global health challenges of our time.
