Digital Health: The Next Frontier

Healthcare has been slow to embrace technology, but now digital transformation in health care is accelerating. The increased demand on the healthcare system triggered many healthcare organizations to make changes to their delivery systems. Hospitals and clinics used telemedicine and remote patient monitoring services to provide meaningful solutions and supplement some healthcare delivery and services deficiencies.

Alternative Sources of Protein, Part 2: The Solutions

Climate change plays a central role in diminishing resources and agricultural outputs. In parallel, the demand for animal-based foods is undeniably on the rise. The question, therefore, is how do we increase the limited supplies of animal-based proteins or their equivalents?

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM): A transient hype or a fundamental change in healthcare services?

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), the monitoring of patients outside a traditional clinical setting, has received an influx of capital over the past few years. The space saw a growth spike in 2020, courtesy of the pandemic.

Is this a transient hype, or did the pandemic catalyze a shift to remote healthcare services for good? Here, we’ll take a closer look at some primary driving forces for RPM adoption, and point out what we believe to be the most exciting opportunities.

Alternative Sources of Protein, Part 1: A Look at What’s Driving the Demand

In particular, proteins, – which are among other things, essential for human brain and muscle development – cannot be made without nitrogen.  In fact, there is no possibility that we can produce food without nitrogen. As we continue to experienceContinue reading “Alternative Sources of Protein, Part 1: A Look at What’s Driving the Demand”

All Eyes on Neuroscience

Currently, over 100 million Americans—and one in six people globally—suffer from a myriad of neurological disorders. With over 1,000 known neurological disorders—some rarer than others— and nearly a third of the U.S. population affected by them, it’s not surprising that these conditions are the leading cause of disability and the second cause of death worldwide.

What’s worse is these numbers will likely grow.

The Unspoken Victim of Extreme Climate

Creative Ventures recently led an investment into PlanetWatchers, a Satellite Aperture Radar (SAR) technology company that turns months of crop assessment into minutes of analysis at one-tenth of the cost. Here we unravel the underlying macro trends driving the need for SAR and why it is needed to combat the exponential growth of extreme climate.

Deep Tech Awakening and How to Predict its Success: Part II

A critic of Deep Tech often claims that Deep Tech investment possesses such a high technology risk, the return is often unjustifiable. This premise fails to distinguish between the shade of grey within the maturity curve of each emerging technology. By understanding this particular nuance, we stand a significantly greater chance in predicting the success of a Deep Tech company.

Deep Tech Awakening and How to Predict Its Success: Part I

During the 2010’s, mobile Internet was experiencing its golden years.
The US started with 20% smartphone penetration and ended with over 70% and 250 million users. Uber roared. Airbnb IPO’ed at a $100+ billion valuation.
But for an investor, this is yesterday’s glory and that means it’s also someone else’s money.

So what’s next?
