AHA announces third fund for its health equity investing strategy

Nashville-based Jumpstart Foundry has a sister program – Jumpstart Nova – which invests exclusively in Black-founded and -led start-ups focused on improving health care access and affordability. That fund announced that the American Hospital Association (AHA) was one of its founding investors, part of AHA’s health equity investing strategy.

Now, AHA announced that it is an investor in Boston-based venture capital firm Seae Ventures. The latter has launched a $107 million fund to invest in women and Black, Indigenous and other historically marginalized entrepreneurs who are developing health and financial technologies that benefit traditionally underrepresented populations.

Earlier AHA announced an investment in SteelSky Ventures, a female-led venture capital firm focused on improving health outcomes for women.
