2017 Healthymagination Cohort Debuts
The Healthymagination Mother & Child program, run in partnership with GE’s Healthymagination team, is a seven-month program for maternal and child health innovators in sub-Saharan Africa. The Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship connects candidates with seasoned, executive mentors who bring Silicon Valley principles and expertise to help you validate your business and scale your work to impact more families. The program starts and ends with in-person events – a kick-off at the GE Africa Innovation Centre in Johannesburg and a closing investor pitch event at the Sankalp Africa Forum in Nairobi.
This year the cohort has fourteen new social entrepreneurs who will benefit from training and mentorship aimed at improving maternal and/or child health outcomes. The program – launched in March 2016 by GE (General Electric) (www.GE.com) and Santa Clara University’s Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship – aims to continue to accelerate health innovations in Sub-Saharan AfUpdaterica.
