MARCH 12, 2020
Like a tsunami approaching in slow-motion, the news is looking more worrying every day. Rather than pile on it, today's newsletter showcases some of the most promising developments in consumer health tech. These could transform the delivery of healthcare services in the medium- and long-run (don't say it). But first: we're officially launching the Ukraine startup database today.

Consortium of Ukraine’s leading ecosystem players team up to launch startup database

With companies like Gitlab, Grammarly and many others, Ukraine is one of Europe's most exciting emerging tech hubs. Investment in Central & Eastern Europe has increased 4.9x since 2015, growing twice as fast as Western Europe. 

We're therefore excited that today, officially, a group of Ukraine's leading players in the ecosystem have teamed up and launched a Dealroom-powered Ukrainian startup database. The consortium is led by ICU, a leading PE & VC investment group. Other partners are the UVCA (Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association), Western NIS Fund (a $150M regional fund), Horizon Capital ($850M assets under management), TechUkraine (gov't-backed ecosystem builder) and A Ventures (seed stage investor)., Ukraine's leading tech blog with over 1 million monthly visitors, is media partner.

Making healthcare more accessible: the next big frontier for online consumer tech

Healthcare is among the least digitised consumer categories, but things are starting to change. The market is heavily regulated, but increasingly embracing things like telemedicine and predictive diagnostics. Pressure from ageing population, spiralling costs and staffing shortages are driving that. Now, increasing awareness about pandemic risks in a globalised world may well accelerate that change further (similar to remote working).

Our upcoming report on online marketpalces in partnership with Adevinta, Speedinvest and Point Nine Capital will dive deeper. In the meantime we're working on an interactive consumer healthcare landscape, including: telemedicine & appointment booking, insurance, pharmacies, mental health, home diagnostics, elderly care, DNA testing, and femtech. Let us know which categories or startups to add via the green button on the screen!
