The health-tech start-up space in India is witnessing exponential growth, especially for the past two years now due to the Covid-19. The pandemic has accelerated innovation in the health-tech sector which has attracted $1.9 billion in funding from venture capitalists in 2021, thereby taking total investments by VCs to $4.4 billion since 2016. The two sectors which have got tailwinds during the pandemic are all set to grow at an annual rate of over 35% over the next few years to touch US$50 billion by 2033.
Capital Connexion, a joint initiative of Zone Startups India and FundEnable will identify 20 early-stage Health Tech and Bio-Tech Startups and assist them in tackling specific challenges through qualified mentoring assistance, and fast track their growth by providing access to capital. 20 startups will get an opportunity to pitch their ventures to the top 15 health tech and biotech VCs.
