African e-Health Startups Receive $7 Million Backing from New Program

Southbridge A&I, Salient Advisory, and SCIDaR have partnered to launch i3, a $7 million programme that seeks to provide 30 African e-health startups with funding and support each year.

Sponsored by the Gates Foundation, the programme will provide 30 African e-health startups per year with access to a systematic grant of $50,000, market and government access events across the continent, and connections to a high-level global ecosystem in the healthcare community.  

i3 aims to identify early-stage or growth-stage innovators across the continent that can make a tangible impact on public health, whether in terms of availability, accessibility, quality or transparency of health supply chains.

These companies will be selected by four leading accelerators across the continent; Startupbootcamp AfriTech in South Africa for Southern Africa, Villgro Africa in Kenya for East Africa, Co-Creation Hub (CcHub) in Nigeria for West Africa, and IMPACT Lab in Morocco for North Africa.

Applications for the first cohort of 30 companies will close on August 14.
