VCCircle Healthcare Investment Summit 2013

After 4 successful editions, VCCircle is delighted to announce 5th annual edition of Healthcare Investment Summit which, in a new format, will bring together India’s healthcare industry’s top and influencing CEOs, institutional and private equity investors to identify the big opportunities in the sector.

Government-run facilities have inadequate equipment and poor quality, while the demand for Healthcare services is poised to grow exponentially owing rising incidence of lifestyle diseases, rising incomes and affordability, and increased penetration of health insurance. As a result private players are innovating to capitalize on these opportunities.

Join us at 5th annual VCCircle Healthcare investment summit as it brings together doctors, medico-entrepreneurs, healthcare CEOs, private equity and venture capital investors for an exclusive round table gathering to explore, discuss and debate the road ahead for Indian Healthcare.
