Growing the health sector in Africa

Founded in 2009 in New York City, we advise, invest in and develop long lasting businesses and initiatives that can transform healthcare in Africa. We use the power of technology, finance and human capital to create economic and social value in healthcare.

The Group brings together the advisory and deal-making expertise of Excelsior Advisors, coupled with the early stage investment capital of Excelsior Ventures. Our Foundation is focused on building skilled human capital to support the growth of the companies and projects in which we invest.

From our head office in Nairobi and Satellite offices in Johannesburg, London and New York, we partner with clients across the globe on private, public and social sector projects.

Why it makes sense

  • Healthcare in Africa is set to reach US$ 35 Billion by 2016 with 60% of that financed by private expenditure

A three-way bargain is critical to solving Africa's health challenges: The private, social and public sectors all have a role to play
