DealStreetAsia covers the private capital industry and the business of startups across Asia. In a recent article they suggest that healthcare in Indonesia is at crossroads. Rising income levels coupled with an already large and growing working population are driving the demands for higher quality healthcare services, and as such, now is the ideal time for the private sector to step in and disrupt the existing healthcare system with innovative business models.
The article goes on to say that a prime example of how this disruption is playing out is SALT Ventures portfolio company Kehamilan Sehat’s approach to tackling some of the pertinent challenges that Indonesia’s healthcare system faces today.
With a specific focus on making quality maternity care available and affordable for all, via its chain of world class but cost efficient maternity care clinics, Kehamilan Sehat is on its way to solving a critical problem for Indonesians.
Founded in 2019, SALT Ventures is a homegrown venture capital firm that currently has USD 110-million in assets under management and has built a portfolio of 19-companies spanning diverse businesses from direct-to-consumer brands and digital content to ed-tech and healthcare, say DealStreetAsia.
In January 2023, DealStreetAsia in association with SALT Ventures hosted an exclusive discussion at the PE-VC Summit in Jakarta to showcase the rise of opportunities in Indonesia’s healthcare sector and explore how investors such as Investcorp and SALT Ventures are approaching these opportunities.
An executive summary, prepared by DealStreetAsia in collaboration with SALT Ventures (ahead of the soon to be released comprehensive report), on the healthcare system in Indonesia with a focus on opportunities for investment and private sector participation served as a basis for this insightful conversation.
Danny Sutradewa Founder and Managing Partner of SALT Ventures; Yongky Oktavianto, Vice President at Investcorp, the largest alternative assets manager from the Middle East, and Prof. Dr. Johanes C Mose, Head of the National Medical and Ethical Committee at Kehamilan Sehat sat down with DealStreetAsia’s representative moderator Snigdha Sengupta for a riveting discussion on the topic.
