Sanofi will be hosting an innovation breakfast event at Metta. They are looking to interact with various start-ups in health-tech and innovation to share ideas and discuss technology and innovation in the healthcare sector.
Sanofi is keen on working with health start-ups who help tackle challenges related to Non-Communicable Diseases NCDs e.g. diabetes, hypertension and cardiac diseases mainly in the area of early diagnosis, healthcare access, better management, awareness NCD etc
During this forum, they would also like to talk about Vivatech and guide the startups on how to leverage on next year’s competition through participation. Sanofi through the Vivatech annual event partners with start-ups based on the focus for the year. This year Sanofi supported the winner not only in funding but also in coaching and mentorship.
Last year there were in 189 applications from Africa, 12 applications from Kenya; Sagitarix a Kenya startup made it to the top 10 shortlist. They will share their experience and how their startup has evolved through this exposure.
