Beliefs we must share for success

22Health is designed to deliver a differentiated venture capital model
Singapore healthtech startups can compete globally

Singapore's robust innovation community is well-positioned to produce globally competitive healthtech startups due to their world-class research, cutting-edge technology, intense focus on talent development, and leading institutions. For example, Singapore is 2nd in World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Survey, has the 4th highest researcher FTEs per capita globally, has the 2nd most "best in world" category rankings in 2022 Global Innovation Index, and is the 1st country to achieve nationwide 5G coverage.

"Global" starts with the U.S.

The U.S. market provides unparalleled growth opportunities for startups with the potential to change the future of health and care. The U.S. accounts for 43.5% of global health spend, 76% of unicorns created in healthtech, and $0.72 of every dollar invested in digital health. The U.S. has the infrastructure to support innovation, including 86% of health systems having one or more executives responsible for innovation.

Success at scale requires a differentiated model

A model deeply embedded in Singapore, underpinned by a team of expert healthcare operators in the U.S., designed to deliver alpha at every step of the process, and committed to investing efficiently at high concentrations in early stages to generate outsized returns.

22Health has the operating model and the team to execute for success
