The African Health Revolution is Here!

Sub-Saharan Africa boasts the fastest growing population in the world - projected to hit 4 billion by the end of the century. Africa also faces some of the largest emerging health challenges in the world, a situation that may worsen if adequate systems for prevention and care aren’t established at scale.

Africa can leapfrog the inefficiencies of 20th century style health system through big data analytics, artificial intelligence and emerging technologies such as blockchain. With more than half the population younger than 25, Africans can revolutionize access, affordability, and quality of health by grasping new technologies that can create value on a massive scale. We believe new innovations Africans conceive and adopt, will change the world.

Digital Acceleration for the Transformation of Africa (DATA) is a first-of-its-kind program that is designed to tackle health challenges on the continent - starting with West Africa! Our goal is simple, take the most dynamic African Diaspora entrepreneurs working on big data analytics, artificial intelligence and emerging technologies in the New York metro area and empower them to lead Africa through the 21st century to better health outcomes. We’ll give the entrepreneurs access to leading experts and aligned investors, and fly them to Accra and Lagos. DATA provides a deep dive with the tools and knowledge entrepreneurs need to scale to those markets, with support through networks, mentorship and investment (growth) opportunities to change the future forever!
