Rhia Ventures is a women-led social impact investment firm focused on connecting capital with entrepreneurs to accelerate innovative solutions in reproductive health.
Why we invest:
Tara Health provided a multi-year grant to support the infrastructure of Rhia Ventures (formerly The Alliance) because we believe that reproductive health has been historically under-funded and deserves more attention in these turbulent times. Rhia Ventures believes that through collaboration more powerful solutions will be created and investments can move the field in new and innovative ways.
We also provided a one-time grant in 2018 in support of Rhia Venture’s work with Circle Biomedical to conduct proof of concept experiments for non-hormonal contraceptive.
In 2019 we also provided one-time grant support for three projects including: Merck for Mother’s Safer Childbirth Cities Initiative, a research project on medical waste, and the production of a business case for reproductive health.
