With Backing From Thiel, Recharge Capital Launches $200 Million Women’s Health Investment Vehicle

By Catherine Shu

Demand for IVF is growing worldwide, but only 1% of healthcare research is invested in female health conditions. Recharge Capital wants to bridge the gap with a new investment vehicle totaling $200 million. It will focus on creating women’s health and fertility care ecosystems in Southeast Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East through investments and roll-ups, including digital healthcare platforms and local clinics.
