Investments include minority ownership to fully owned subsidiaries. We have made around 25 investments to date, backed strong entrepreneurs such as the founders of Mindler, Doctrin, Knodd, Findout Diagnostic, Health Integrator, Medicheck among others. Curus portfolio is sprung from Add Health Media’s investment arm. Our mission is to back the best founders with knowledge, network, marketing, strategic advice and capital to build long-term value. We are also active in searching and acquiring new companies in health and medicine.
Most of us, even healthcare professionals, are not aware of all the new innovations in health and medicine that are already available today. Meeting your doctor, psychologist or dietitian online has now been used by many patients, but it was only a couple of years ago that most people did not think it was possible. There are already other similar changes on the doorstep that will do great changes within the next two years. Some examples of this phenomena can be to improve the effect of your medicine if it is combined with a mobile app, take your lab test with your directly connected mobile and upload it to your doctor, screening for dementia online, doctors can prescribe physical activity via a mobile app which adapts to your motivation and needs which the doctor can then follow up. We at Curus are involved in creating these new innovations together with entrepreneurs who are passionate about the future of health.
