About this event

The Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award 2022 is an invitation to (social) entrepreneurs working in low and middle-income countries to make healthcare financially more accessible in low-income communities.
The Swiss Re Foundation Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award recognises entrepreneurial initiatives that take innovative approaches to build resilient societies in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Demand for affordable healthcare has increased along with the global population, and COVID-19 has only intensified the challenges of providing it.

Health expenditures push an estimated 100 million people worldwide into extreme poverty every year. New approaches to financing healthcare are more urgently needed than ever.

Strengthening our commitment from last year, we will continue to take up this challenge through the Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award 2022.

In the 2022 award cycle, we are looking to support innovative solutions that increase financial access to healthcare in low-income communities. To be eligible for the award, an enterprise must take a business-minded approach that increase the resources available to households to pay for healthcare or that reduces the risk of lasting economic vulnerability or poverty following an illness or accident.

The three finalists will be awarded with funding up to USD 700 000 and non-financial support from experts across Swiss Re and beyond.
