Making More Health brings together actors from the healthcare ecosystem, including social entrepreneurs, corporations, impact investors, government agencies, foundations, and local stakeholders, among others, to engage and collaborate on ways to increase access to healthcare for underserved populations around the world.
The Making More Health Business Accelerator, is a structured business growth program targeted at social entrepreneurs with innovative solutions in the health sector. The program offers two engagement phases.
