Our Story

Our journey started in September 2020. At that point, the COVID pandemic had spread all over the world and there were many heartbreaking stories of loss of families and friends. The pandemic exponosed not only the economic inequalities but also the poor access to and quality of healthcare. Many people could simply not get treatment because they lived too far away from the nearest facilities which may not have the right equipment.

This was unacceptable to us. The idea for SIMcubator was born. We firmly believe that local leaders already have the ideas to improve the healthcare situation because they are confronted with it every day. 

However, countless of these incredible ideas never come to life because entrepreneurs might not know how to materialize them or do not have access to resources like capital and guidance. This is where the SIMcubator comes in.
