5) Impact Investing: The digital health revolution

Digital health businesses are changing the face of health care by delivering affordable life changing services at scale to people in need. One revolutionary business is Thrive, an evidence-based smartphone application providing in-depth tools and support for anyone to improve their mental wellbeing. Founded in 2012 by Dr. Andres Fonseca, Thrive has helped more than one million people and raised multiple rounds of capital from ClearlySo’s extensive network of high-net-worth individual and institutional investors. Stephen Murdoch, human rights attorney turned impact investor and member of the ClearlySo Angels, serves as its chairman. 

On this webinar, ClearlySo Health Sector Lead Stefano Cappanari will highlight the latest trends in the sector and will interview Dr. Fonseca and Stephen to discuss what has made Thrive so successful, investors are looking for and the challenges businesses looking to raise capital face.
