Yatin Patil, MD, FACP, Managing Partner of D4HI
Yatin is an Internist with a passion for supporting startups that will have a positive impact on people’s health and lives. As managing partner at D4HI Venture Fund 2021, he desires to facilitate investments by physicians in early-stage healthcare startups and support them in their journey to success.
Yatin’s previous experience includes investments in over 50 startups as an angel investor and through online platforms. In 2019, he co-founded Mission Growth Investments (MGI), a physician group investing in healthcare startups. In response to growing interest amongst physician colleagues, the group started co-investing with other physician investors into healthcare startups. The desire to further reduce the barrier to investments for physicians and
promote wealth generation led to the creation of D4HI.
About D4HI: Our vision is to facilitate engagement of
physicians in development of healthcare technology. We are not here to build the world's largest healthcare startup network, but we are here to build the BEST!
Our strength is our network of physicians and innovators with subject matter expertise in all healthcare specialties. As healthcare experts, angel investors, venture capitalists, physician advisors,
and healthcare innovators, our goal is to make a meaningful impact on healthcare and to solve real problems.
We are here to help each other. And YES, we are also here to claim our fair share of that value.
