Kasha Raises $21 Million Series B Led by Knife Capital to Expand Health Access Platform Across Africa

By Tage Kene-Okafor

As Africa’s youthful population continues to grow exponentially, it’s of the utmost importance that entrepreneurs create various healthcare solutions that will cater to the medical needs of the continent’s future. While the pandemic made investors pay attention to Africa’s private healthcare space, women’s health — a subcategory dominated by women founders that broadly addresses women’s menstrual and reproductive health — is subtly neglected.

Yet, considering other emerging markets have set a precedent, it’s only a matter of time before this category gets the venture capital dollars it deserves; the recent $21 million Series B investment in Rwandan startup Kasha is a subtle testament to the fact.
