ImpactAlpha, November 1 – An estimated five billion people don’t have access to safe or affordable surgical care if they need it. In remote and lower-income areas, lack of facilities, resources, staff and training limit the availability and quality of care.

Netherlands-based Incision has developed an online academy of accredited video courses to support surgical teams worldwide, from setting up operating rooms and surgical protocols, to detailed surgical steps for individual procedures.

Incision partners with more than 200 hospitals worldwide.

California-based healthtech investor Alafi Capital and Netherlands-based Dennendonck backed the $7 million first close of Incision’s Series B round. Existing backers include Rubio Impact Ventures (formerly Social Impact Ventures), a Dutch impact fund that invests in Netherlands-based social enterprises.
