Galen Growth Asia: European Expansion Plans Revealed

As Vas Narasimhan, Novartis’ global CEO, put so succinctly at the World Economic Forum, “going big on data and digital will be one of the keys to Novartis’ future” and that of healthcare.

Galen Growth Asia (GGA) is the leading, exclusively HealthTech, research, analytics and advisory firm in Asia Pac serving Fortune 500 companies and global investors. With our commitment to accelerating the timeline to ROI of a digital strategy, we have built a unique analytics platform which assesses and evaluates the maturity of the majority of the 4000+ HealthTech ventures in Asia Pac.

To respond to the growing demand and needs of its continuously expanding client base of healthcare incumbents, new entrants and investors, GGA is excited to announce it is expanding its footprint to include Europe.

The synergy between the two continents has never been stronger and the creation of a larger ecosystem will offer all stakeholders greater depth and access through our solutions.

Making Europe’s HealthTech ecosystem part of the larger Asia Pac community which GGA has built since its inception will enable companies, startups, investors, clinicians, scientists, patients and suppliers to scale to the next level of healthcare innovation transformation.

Similarly to Asia Pac, GGA will position itself at the epicentre of HealthTech innovation across Europe to be the go-to-reference for digital health across the region for enterprise, investors and startups to better address their needs through the bridging these two vibrant ecosystems.

We strongly believe that extending our value proposition and reach, will create unique and valuable opportunities for both our existing and prospective clients, reflecting their quest to enable the future of healthcare, by broadening perspectives through the identification of new trends and the creation of potential deals and partnerships

GGA will be establishing its European headquarters in Basel (Switzerland), the home of healthcare leaders such as Roche, Novartis, Bayer, amongst many others, during the course of Q2 2019.

Notwithstanding our imminent geographic expansion, Asia Pac’s extremely promising HealthTech ecosystem will remain at the core of GGA’s focus and activities with the team growing to better serve all our stakeholders with ongoing discussion with strategic investors.

GGA will continue to deliver its HealthTech strategy acceleration services and will be launching the next generation of its HealthTech Alpha platform in April 2019. You can also look forward to the next edition of our much sought-after annual HealthTech Summit on November 14-15, 2019 in Singapore with innovation labs dedicated to fostering collaboration between the 50 most promising HealthTech CEOs in Asia and leading corporates and investors.
