HEALTH GAP VENTURES
A market gap that matters
HGV funds companies that address health inequities. Entrepreneurs need mission-aligned capital that recognizes and comprehends the complexities of underserved markets. Current healthcare venture investors underweight investments in opportunities that address health disparities.
Status quo widens disparities. Health care venture capital claims to invest in products and services that help improve the health of all people. However, the vast majority of investors overlook the importance of race social economic status gender and ability which further increases the health gap.
Systematic bias plays an important role. Investors’ biases against underserved populations affect their deal flow, using them to systematically underweight products and services that address health disparities.
We see a segment that others don't. By focusing uniquely on investments that address the health gap, HGV has an opportunity for transformative impact.
