Over the past few years, NHIM has made efforts to grow its community which consists of several key actors in the healthcare ecosystem. In order to have the optimal interactions and collaborations within this ecosystem, all key players and groups need to be adequately engaged. A notable group within the healthcare entrepreneurship ecosystem receiving seemingly low visibility . NHIM has recognized this vacuum and in turn rendered a solution to this by creating the Female Founders Network (FFN).  Interactions with both local and international partners have validated the need for a bespoke local support system either to provide accelerated business support or a sustainable female-led community.
