Ahmad Jubbawey, CEO of Vensa Health said, “We’re thrilled to be on Red Herring’s Top 100 Asia. The list has a reputation for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.”

Vensa Health has a vision of closing the gap for people’s health, one by one, targeting to touch 500 million people worldwide.

“We believe Vensa Health embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Vensa Health should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
