LifeBank has officially expanded its operations to Kenya. The Nigerian healthtec startup thus successfully completed the replication process initiated by the “Meet&Multiply” event. Meet&Multiply is an Endeva venture and was hosted by iBAN in February 2019 in Nairobi as an official side-event at the Sankalp Africa Forum. “The event facilitated our meeting with Nelly Wakaba, Founder of Holo Healthcare, with whom we are currently negotiating a joint venture agreement,” stated Temie Giwa-Tubosun, founder and CEO of LifeBank.
Since its inception, LifeBank has saved the lives of over 10,000 people by moving 25,000+ critical products to 550 hospitals. “At LifeBank, we will continue to stay true to our mission of ending preventable deaths by helping hospitals in Kenya discover medical products and deliver them in the right condition and on time.”
Meet&Multiply is Endeva’s innovative matchmaking process that helps inclusive businesses to scale and replicate. With a proven methodology, we carefully select potential adopters and the right set of ecosystem partners that can help originators to multiply their impact. After a one-day match-making event, we provide financial and technical follow-up support to ensure successful replication.
