Description

Maternova is the first global marketplace for ideas and technologies saving mothers and newborns.

We make it easy for doctors, nurses and midwives to track innovation and to buy technologies and kits to use overseas. Our focus is on tools and protocols that save lives in childbirth. We are a mission-driven for-profit. While our site is quite robust, we are a small, bootstrapped startup.

WHAT IS MATERNOVA ALL ABOUT?

We are about moving maternal and newborn care into the 21st century.

Two very basic questions guide our work.

  • What effective, low-cost tools (in development or on the market) can save mothers' and newborns' lives in low-resource settings?
  • How can these tools be accessed and distributed?

TWO GOALS CORE TO OUR MISSION DERIVE FROM THESE THREE QUESTIONS:

  • track innovations
  • pack & sell low-cost tools

WHO IS THE AUDIENCE?

Our audience is the frontline health worker and all organizations, policymakers, and individuals who support her.

In their fight to save women's lives, health workers are in desperate need of information, tools, skills, and peer connection. To maximize resources and empower their efforts, Maternova is building a portal for innovation in global maternal and neonatal health.

Our aim is the creation of a go-to site for connection, technology, and cutting-edge thought in global maternal health. The field has already welcomed medical, public health, design, and business professionals, but new groups-- industrial designers, entrepreneurs, engineers-- are increasingly interested in the power of simple innovations to change lives. Maternova seeks to build on these seismic changes, to amplify their positive effect on women and their families.
