Kamet Ventures: Ravit Warsha Dor
Axa-backed start-up studio Kamet Ventures has appointed Ravit Warsha Dor (pictured) as a partner in its healthcare team as part of its drive to create and build disruptive healthtech start-ups for global markets.
Warsha Dor has more than two decades’ experience across the technology, business and health sector. For the past three years she has been head of innovation for national digital health at the Israeli Ministry of Health, advising the Israeli government on how best to integrate digital health solutions into healthcare organisations. She has helped start-ups to work with Israeli healthcare institutions as part of the government’s multimillion-dollar programme to improve the level of care and service provision by exploiting new technologies and digital systems.
Warsha Dor began her career in an elite unit of the Israeli army before starting her tech career as a hands-on coder and research and development manager. She later switched to a business role and gained entrepreneurial experience in a variety of companies and positions including, at one point, her own start-up. She has worked in the digital health sector from its inception in the UK and Israel, and was one of the first organisers of mHealth Israel, the largest non-profit digital community in Israel, comprising investors, entrepreneurs, developers and healthcare professionals trying to innovate in digital health.
She will work with Kamet Ventures’ digital healthcare teams in London, Paris and Tel Aviv to bring to life new start-ups which have the potential to transform healthcare provision in selected markets.
Kamet Ventures says it has been committed to building healthtech and medtech companies since its inception. One of its early successes is French occupational health company Padoa. Other successes include Qare, the telemedicine provider in France, and Ibex Medical Analytics, a Tel Aviv-based company which applies artificial intelligence to cancer diagnostics.
