80 Women from 25 Countries Leading Global Digital Health Startups.

Spotlighting the women leading the world’s most promising Digital Health Startups.

80 CEOs from our inaugural Digital Health 1000 are women. We're celebrating this inspirational cohort and hoping this spotlight inspires action and support for more women entrepreneurs around the world.

HolonIQ identified the top 1000 Digital Health startups around the world. Region by region, we mapped the most promising Digital Health startups, both early and late stage. We mapped the Africa Digital Health 50, Australia and New Zealand Digital Health 100, East Asia Digital Health 100, Europe Digital Health 200, India and South Asia Digital Health 100, LATAM Digital Health 50, MENA Digital Health 50, North America Digital Health 200 and finally the Southeast Asia Digital Health 50. To be eligible, these companies had to be startups (i.e. not acquired, controlled or listed), operating in health technology, and generally less than 10 years old.

We’re celebrating the women leading these incredible startups as CEOs or Co-CEOs, and the work they’re doing across Digital Health companies around the world. Through our work at HolonIQ, which is also co-founded and co-led by a woman, we are determined to play our part in eliminating the gender gap in leadership, entrepreneurship and education.

Despite the progress made in parity for women, there’s still an enormous amount to be done. Our Global State of Play Report on Women CEOs and Leadership (from last International Women’s day) around the world deep dives into the numbers across different industries to highlight the areas making most progress and where much work is still to be done.

80 Women from 25 Countries Leading Global Digital Health Startups.

The following amazing women are leading the most promising Digital Health Startups globally. With an estimated 90% failure rate, building and running a Digital Health startup is not for the faint-hearted, and research shows that barriers for women looking to start or lead a successful business remain high. The women you see below have not only overcome significant odds but are focused on making a difference in the lives of millions worldwide. Congratulations on your impact so far and we look forward to tracking your progress over the coming years.

If by chance we have missed a women CEO who leads a Digital Health company selected in HolonIQ’s Global Digital Health 1000 Series, please contact us immediately and we will update the list.
