HealthMatch encodes qualifying questions relating to each patients condition. The platform matches responses to its trial dataset, and confirms only the correct-match trials for that patient — thereby streamlining the identification of suitable trials and facilitating a patient’s application to those trials.With Ai and software at the core, HealthMatch delivers a radically simple product to match patients with drug trials, backed by an execution approach to data that is deceptively complex to achieve and replicate. In doing so, HealthMatch is dramatically changing an industry that has essentially not moved beyond telephones and excel spreadsheets.

  • CalReply — Drive results and measure impact with personalized outreach to each customer, sent when subscribers are most likely to engage with Rokt Calendar.
  • ImageBrief — ImageBrief is an online marketplace that connects image buyers with a global network of professional photographers. Buyers can post a brief for an immediate image requirement and photographers submit images that are tailored to the buyer's request.Targeted at advertising agencies, marketing departments, magazines and graphic designers,ImageBrief provides an alternative solution for image buyers who no longer wish to spend hours trawling through image stock libraries. ImageBrief is not a stock library but is a crowd sourced buyer-driven marketplace connecting image buyers and photographers. By letting buyers outline their needs within a brief and allowing photographers to respond, it turns the traditional image buying process on its head. ImageBrief provides a new way for buyers to source rights-managed images that perfectly match their usage and exclusivity requirements. Photographers ensure that their image meets the requirements before submitting, which means buyers only see images they can actually use.ImageBrief also allows buyers and photographers to interact and collaborate directly while working on the brief. Both buyers and photographers can ask questions, provide each other with feedback, or clarify requirements. Perhaps the greatest difference however is that buyers establish their usage requirements and budget up-front. This allows photographers to understand the terms of the brief and to decide whether to respond.

Initially focused on East Africa, the fund aims to bridge the early stage/angel and venture capital investment gap that currently exists in Africa. The Fund expects toachieve this objective by combining capital with mentor networks both in the region and from Silicon Valley via an accelerator program and a follow-on independent seed fund.The fund is managed by an experienced and technology savvy team that have founded companies or are actively involved in angel investing or having run successful accelerator programs in past but also understand the unique Subsaharan African environment. They are backed and supported by both local, regional and international networks of angels,venture capitalists whose expertise we can draw on to help startups succeed and scale to fully fledged regional or global companies.They believe in the potential for Africa to become a global technology innovator by creating sustainable for profit companies that create jobs and make an impact.
