As healthcare costs rise to unsustainable levels and life spans increase, there is an acute need and unprecedented potential for technology to revolutionize healthcare. The tsunami created by the convergence of biology and technology has created enormous opportunities to improve the quality, affordability and access to healthcare. It is time to realize the potential for HealthTech to not only extend life, but to improve our quality of life: to provide proactive, not just reactive care. To prevent, not only to treat.

aMoon was established by serial entrepreneurs Dr. Yair Schindel and Marius Nacht in 2017 to seize this unique moment in time. Yair, a physician, entrepreneur and investor, sensed that HealthTech held the potential to unleash a transformation that could dramatically change the way healthcare is delivered: from reactive to predictive, from treatment to prevention, from generic to personalized. Marius, who helped build the cybersecurity industry from the ground up as a cofounder of Check Point, witnessed through his father’s battle with cancer the vast unmet need for innovation in the healthcare industry.
We are MD’s, PhD’s, entrepreneurs and investors from around the globe who have dedicated our lives to science, medicine, technology, and progress.
