We are a life science and health care company (LSHC). We sponsor investments in life science comprising pharmaceuticals and medical devices, and health care comprising clinics and hospitals in the frontier market. In addition, we sponsor investments in specialized real estate for life science and health care. Our primary focus is African countries with Kenya as a starting point.


We invest in building Sustainable One Health Communities (SOHCs), designed to overcome the grand challenge of global health. Our sustainable model for global health recognizes the role of the animals, the economy and the environment in human health. Indeed, we believe that sustainable health production in global health is a function of a system that integrates simultaneous operation of human health, animal health, environmental health and economic health. The four modes of production of health (i.e., production of health of humans, production of health of animals, production of health of the environment, and production of health of the economy) must work together, jointly and simultaneously as one entity. Our SOHCs are rooted in the conception that economic development is the most powerful means of health production, by integrating the production of human health, animal health and environmental health. At the root of economic health production is industrial development in life science, to support sustainable research, education, translation and commercialization of innovations in health. This aspect proposes implementation of a biomedical industrial city.
