Emerging Markets Connect is a recently established, catalytic bridging platform, connecting Startup and Early-Stage companies in emerging markets with national and international investors in the Education and Health arenas. From education, e-learning, edtech as well as wider, digital educational applications and ecosystems, to healthcare, telemedicine, healthtech, medical diagnostics, electronic medical records and e-pharma, EMC offers direct access, as well as introductory services, to some of the most prominent international financial institutions, angel/individual, private equity and venture capital investors in both sectors.
As sole Publisher of both Emerging Markets Education Watch and Emerging Markets Healthcare News Feed, EMC has developed and maintained extensive contacts with many individuals and financial institutions invested in growing startup and early-stage companies in these rapidly expanding sectors worldwide. Since 2010, for the past 10 years, The International Finance Corporation (IFC) of the World Bank as well as The Asian Development Bank (ADB) have, respectively, annually renewed subscriptions to EMC's Emerging Markets Healthcare News Feed and EMC's Emerging Markets Education Watch. Investor interest in, and appetite for, Education and Healthcare startups and early-stage companies responding, and adapting, to the new normal of today's world has grown exponentially in the past six months. The IFC has made over $450m in investments in online e-learning institutions in just the past 5 years alone - in Latin America, Africa and Asia Pacific. With over $14 billion in loans and grants to the education sector for more than 50 years, ADB's track record also speaks for itself. In early 2020, the ADB launched ADB Ventures, a new venture platform that will support and invest in startups offering impact technology solutions that contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Asia and the Pacific, which include Health (SDG 3) and Education (SDG 4). The IFC has an active portfolio of $2 billion in health care companies in emerging markets. Through these investments, IFC helps private providers meet the exponentially growing demand for health care. Many intersecting, mutually-reinforcing synergies that exist between the education and healthcare sectors, continue to generate robust global investor interest.
