TVM Capital Rebrands Regional Operations to Reflect Healthcare Focus and Wider Geographical Remit

DUBAI, UAE, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

TVM Capital MENA changed to 'TVM Capital Healthcare Partners' as the PE firm pursues growing investment opportunities in additional emerging markets

TVM Capital MENA, the region's first private equity firm dedicated to the healthcare sector, has announced it will be re-named as TVM Capital Healthcare Partners, to reflect the company's focus on healthcare and the expansion of its investment geography beyond the  MENA region.

The announcement comes after TVM Capital Healthcare Partners recently announced its intention to invest up to US$100 million in India over the next three to five years, through its IVF chain Bourn Hall International.

Led by Chairman & CEO Dr. Helmut M. Schühsler, TVM Capital Healthcare Partners was established in Dubai in 2009 targeting the growing investment opportunity in private sector healthcare across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The company has so far focused on making growth capital and small buyout investments from its first fund, TVM Healthcare MENA I. It has led investment of more than US$60 million in three portfolio companies in the field of long-term care, rehabilitation and home care - ProVita International Medical Centers, Cambridge Medical & Rehabilitation Center and Manzil Health Care Services; and the fourth company Bourn Hall International, a world leader in IVF and fertility.

TVM Capital Healthcare Partners' strategy is to take advantage of increasing needs for private sector healthcare solutions in emerging markets, by focusing on specialized services that are either non-existent, or drastically undersupplied, and providing international quality standard care at a local level. A second focus of the firm is the pharmaceutical, diagnostics and medical device industries.

Chairman & CEO Dr. Helmut M. Schühsler said: ''we have a proven track record of breaking new ground by growing pioneering healthcare companies in the Middle East, as well as India. As we are currently exploring a number of opportunities further afield, the name TVM Capital Healthcare Partners is a better demonstration of our mission to bring global best practice and world-class care to local patients in emerging markets, but not only limited to the MENA region.'’

TVM Capital Healthcare Partners is a member of TVM Capital Group, the international healthcare and life sciences investment firm, and has clinical affiliations with strong international healthcare institutions such as the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network (a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital) and Bourn Hall Clinic, Cambridge, UK (the world's first IVF clinic). It also adds value to its portfolio companies through growth focused services provided by TVM Shared Services, an accelerator organisation that provides a wide range of support, from strategy development and implementation to IT infrastructure, finance and accounting and other services, ensuring portfolio companies' growth is maximised through access to a seasoned team of professionals.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
