As part of this program, each startup will receive up to USD 70,000 in seed funding, mentorship from Yale’s faculty and alumni, as well as benefits from a network of Indian industry experts.

In addition, the program includes structured sessions to help the selected startups evolve into a sustainable and scalable business model, refine their go-to-market strategy and build a global network.

“Around the world, we face growing health and economic disparities. The public sector cannot fully address the scope and scale of these challenges without private sector ingenuity and creativity,” Sten Vermund, Dean, Yale School of Public Health, said.

“We are enthusiastic about the launch today of the Sustainable Health Initiative to further find innovative solutions that will have a significant impact on the health of communities in India, the U.S., and around the world,” he added.

The objective of the event was to inspire, align, and connect founders, investors and coaches to create a community, with a shared focus on ushering innovative and scalable solutions to the Indian healthcare sector.
