Lusaka-based health-tech business looking for a mentor in operations and accounting to compete in the highly regulated healthcare space
The healthcare sector is a highly regulated area which has a lot of barriers. The health professionals board doesn’t allow paid advertising which hinders customer awareness and our marketing strategies. As a company we have joined the Zambia Information Communication and Technology Authority (ZICTA) program to help us partner with organisations like Unicef and other big players in the market. Also getting support from ZICTA will enable us to launch a USSD app and improve our credibility.
We are looking for a mentor with a background in the healthcare sector or similarly highly regulated sectors. We hope they have a strong network which we can leverage on to make our maneuver easier. The mentor having built a successful business themselves is a plus for my team. Another characteristic we are looking for in a mentor is one with financial background. These qualities we hope would help us leapfrog the barriers we are facing reducing the number of mistakes we would have otherwise done.
