VF Healthcare

“700 million people have no access to specialist care”

“70% of population live in rural area – 80%
of specialist available in urban area”

“0.7 doctors per 1000 patients”

What’s VF Healthcare

Healthcare entrepreneurs face unique issues. Regulatory hurdles, long sales cycle and competition from incumbent firms. This makes it tough for startups to succeed. Fuelled with our extensive industry insights and past experience, the VF Healthcare program is uniquely designed for mid career executives and serial entrepreneurs to enable and stimulate early stage innovation and entrepreneurial success. The program enables entrepreneurs to get mentored, access to industry leaders, connect with early adopters and get funding to work on the next big Healthcare venture.

If you are a person who routinely approach challenges with a “don’t get ready, get started” mentality, and like wearing multiple hats, being a hands-on builder, and would like to be part of a creative and entrepreneurial environment, this is for you.
