Innovation

At a time when technology is advancing at such a rapid pace, healthcare delivery is changing. To not innovate, is to the detriment of lives. Innovation in healthcare drives adaptive improvement, creates social value and improves quality of life for all.

WISH is committed to building a rich ecosystem for health innovation. We invest in people and companies that will transform the delivery of healthcare to build a healthier world.

WISH gave me the confidence that the Arab innovators can compete with international innovators and lead their nations and put the innovation at the national ranks.

WISH was a key catalyst to my success. After attending WISH in 2015 I was named an emerging global entrepreneur by the White House in Washington and went on to be hosted and recognized by 44th President Barak Obama prior to his leaving office.
