PRESS RELEASE

London, 31 October 2019

London: Kamet Ventures has appointed Ravit Warsha Dor, the former head of Innovation for National Digital Health at the Israeli Ministry of Health, as partner in its Healthcare team. The hire is part of Kamet’s accelerated drive to create and build disruptive health tech startups for global markets.

With over two decades of experience across the technology, business and health space, Ravit has spent the past three years advising the Israeli government on how best to integrate digital health solutions into healthcare organisations. She has been helping startups to work with Israeli healthcare institutions as part of the government’s multi-million dollar programme to improve the level of care and service provision by exploiting new technologies and digital systems.

Ravit began her career in an elite unit of the Israeli army before starting her tech career as a hands-on coder and R&D manager. She later switched to a business role and gained valuable entrepreneurial experience in a variety of companies and positions including, at one point, her own startup. She has worked in the digital health space 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 comprised of investors, entrepreneurs, developers and healthcare professionals trying to innovate in digital health.

Ravit will work with Kamet Ventures’ digital healthcare teams in London, Paris and Tel Aviv to bring to life exciting new startups which have the potential to transform healthcare provision in selected markets.

Kamet Ventures has been committed to building health tech and med tech companies since its inception. One of its early successes is French startup Padoa, which three years later is a leading occupational health company in France. Other successes include Qare, the leading telemedicine provider in France and Ibex Medical Analytics, a Tel Aviv-based company which applies Artificial Intelligence to cancer diagnostics.
Michael Niddam, executive partner at Kamet Ventures, said:

“We believe in backing entrepreneurs and building pioneering companies that have the power to transform and reshape the health and insurance industries as we know them today. Ravit’s extensive experience across the digital health space will be an invaluable resource to our team and we are thrilled she will be joining us to lead our efforts in healthcare innovation.”

Ravit Warsha Dor said: “I am excited to join Kamet Ventures and work on finding innovative solutions to the most challenging issues in healthcare today including mental health, digital pathology, and ageing. This is an exciting time to be in digital health as governments and insurers are waking up to the opportunities that digital technology offers. Kamet’s platform and investment model is one of a kind and I’m looking forward to exploiting its unique framework for technological innovation, its strong team and strategic funding to bring advanced digital health solutions to market.”

Ravit holds a B.Sc in Bioinformatics from Tel Aviv University and an MBA from Cambridge Judge Business School.
