Infusion 51a LP (“Infusion 51a” or the “Fund”), an impact investment fund investing in life-science companies aiming to help patients around the world, participated in the Dubai 2022 EMERGE GHI and PrecisionMed Expo, which took place May 24th-25th and are two of the most relevant events within the healthcare ecosystem in the MENA region.
With the goal to present investors with disruptive opportunities in global healthcare, the EMERGE GHI (Gulf, Health, Innovation) is an international gathering that brings together over 100 health-tech startups, industry investors, and healthcare practitioners looking to meet the growing healthcare needs, and create the right collaborations for the development of future treatments.
On the other hand, PrecisionMed Exhibition & Summit provides a unique opportunity for healthcare providers, academic scientists, and industry experts in this ecosystem to share knowledge and make connections that will potentially transform into alliances, more innovations, and new opportunities for patients.
Mr. Jeff Stephens, Infusion 51a’s General Partner, attended the co-events with Mr. Mehrab Ajalli, the fund’s Director of Strategic Growth in the MENA Region. Mr. Stephens commented on the experience:
“It is an honor and privilege to attend the EmergeGHI and the PrecisionMed expo here in Dubai. Watching the Middle East committed to innovation and investing in infrastructure that could be first in class is truly exciting. Infusion 51a is thrilled to put our footprint into this region and collaborate with various hospitals, different innovators and key opinion leaders in this space while expanding globally.”
David Stradling, Event Director, also shared his impressions: “PrecisionMed Exhibition & Summit and Emerge GHI have found a home in a region where the appetite for technology and healthcare investment is consistently expanding. Our specialized events can help bring innovators in direct contact with investors, and policymakers, who are ready to invest in health-tech that can help progress development in healthcare. We’re glad to count on so many great participants from around the world, like Infusion 51a, from the US, who are definitely fighting to change the game in the healthcare industry.”
