VIA Global Health Accepted Into the Prestigious MAN Impact Accelerator

VIA is honored to announce that we have been included alongside esteemed company in the latest cohort of social enterprises in the MAN Impact Accelerator. In collaboration with Yunus Social Business, the MAN Impact Accelerator is built to scale social ventures in transport and logistics with a considerable impact on society.

“Working with the MAN Impact Accelerator and Yunus Social Business teams, and almost as importantly with the extensive mentor network with invaluable insights from their experience in the field, is an opportunity that will have an incredibly positive impact on VIA Global Health,” said Noah Perin, VIA’s CEO. “The wealth of knowledge that we’ve already been shared in just the first few days shows the impact that this accelerator can have on companies innovating in the global health and logistics space. I’m inspired by the other companies in our cohort who share VIA’s goal of positive social impact.”

The accelerator will kick off in Munich, Germany next month and includes attending GSBS 2018, and then continue on with workshops in Cape Town, South Africa, Bangalore, India and Silicon Valley/San Francisco, USA over the coming months as we work with our mentors to increase access throughout emerging markets to impactful health technologies.
