Good health is a right that should not be restricted by gender, race, wealth, age or borders.
WE BACK CEO's WHO SHARE OUR VISION AND COMMITMENT.
Cross Border Impact Ventures aims to be the preferred investor for transformative health technology companies with the potential of meeting the needs of women, children and adolescents across global markets. We have partnered with Grand Challenges Canada to develop a world class platform that breaks the paradigm of who benefits from leading technologies.
We strive to earn venture capital returns for our investors and to empower our portfolio companies to reach beyond their primary markets in the United States and Europe to reach more vulnerable populations in developing economies. We also invest in select developing market companies with reverse technology transfer potential. We work collaboratively with the CEOs of our portfolio companies and our networks to enable commercial success, promote gender equality and deliver measurable impact with creative approaches tailored to local contexts.
