• WeFund Health strives to improve wellness outcomes and prolong lives by commercializing healthcare innovations and connecting transformational companies with intelligent capital partners.

What We Do

WeFund Health is an international strategic advisory firm focused on market entry strategies,
direct investments, and platform-based industry-specific investment vehicles.

With headquarters in New York City, and presence in Europe, Russia, and China, we understand the
complexity of the ever-shifting global economy. For over 20 years we have been a part of this
robust and dynamic force, and understand the challenges it presents.

Rapidly evolving trends, regulatory obstacles, lack of access to capital on local markets, and myriad
of other barriers demand from businesses to have a nimble and facts-based strategy.

Our knowledge and agility are the two core principles in the way we approach business strategy
in both advisory and investment arms of the company.

We design business models based on:

• Knowledge of international markets attained from years of experience and access to a
unique network of experts in a wide spectrum of industries and verticals;

• Understanding of consumer, business, and technological trends;

• Proven methodology of aligning product, team, and the market cycle to foster growth;

• Access to the right relationships and strategic resources necessary for venture growth and
success.

While our advisory practice works with a wide range of industry categories, our investment interests are focused in Biotech, Health Care and Wellness Technology and Communications, with a special emphasis on industry-specific platform solutions.

Partnerships

WeFund Health is an international business hub built on the foundation of long-standing
partnerships that drive unique opportunities, connections and business transactions. We leverage
our global community of recognized experts and advisors across a wide range of industries and
verticals. We partner with leading incubators, accelerators, brokerages, investment vehicles,
universities, and hospitals, in the United States, South America, Western and Eastern Europe, Israel,
and Asia. Decades of doing business on the international scale in both mature and emerging
markets have trusted relationships with deal flow partners, institutional and private investors, as
well as family offices from around the world.

Gained expertise, competencies and relationships help us structure our deals, tap new investment
opportunities, and facilitate market entry for our clients. That is why expanding our network and
forming new mutually beneficial partnerships is our business philosophy.

Whether you are an investor seeking new opportunities, a startup with a promising product, or
potential collaborator in Europe or Asia, we invite you to join the WeFund Health ecosystem today.
