SUMMARY

HealthVenture is not a conventional investment firm and we do not intend to become one. In the last 3 years we have focused on building an organization that emphasizes collaboration, creativity and care. Enabling us to provide our clients and partners with customized services that meet their needs. A small but mighty team, we’re proud of where we have reached thus far and excited for what 2019 holds for our company.

We continue to make excellent progress toward transforming healthcare with innovative digital health solutions. In 2018 we added two companies to our portfolio: Mymee, a data analytical company helping individuals gain control over their autoimmune diseases with and Total Mama, an artificial intelligence company that provides women with personalized health information to expecting mothers before, during and after. We also doubled down on our commitment to female founders and entrepreneurs, starting the #WomanCrushEntrepreneur blog and social media campaign. We also hosted the inaugural LeadHERs in Digital Health event in Atlanta specifically for women founders and leaders of digital health startups.

In a period of profound political and economic change around the world, our company is confronting a significant shift within the healthcare industry. We are encouraged to continue facing the challenges given the opportunity to join a movement creating systems that increase the access, affordability and availability of health care.
