Sangu Delle: Investing in Dignity, Innovation, and a Healthier Future

One in a Billion

Should a Harvard education prepare you for failure?Should failure be normalized in the course of higher education?Or at the very least, would you want to learn how to take or talk about failure? Those are the sort of questions rarely asked if you’re a Harvard student who is used to acing your exams, winning accolades or top awards until one day – you suddenly lose what you’ve been taking for granted. In “Where Are They Now?” Episode #4, Gemma Schneider (Harvard student journalist/Class of 2023) interviews Sangu Delle (Harvard Class of 2010, Harvard JD & MBA 2016).  An entrepreneur, investor, author and philanthropist, Sangu speaks powerfully about his personal struggle with depression after a major business investor died suddenly before wiring the money. A lot were at stakes. Sangu was at a loss for words and found himself in a dark world for a long time before getting back on his feet. Today, he is a champion for mental health and a vocal teacher about the norm of failure. I am happy to be co-hosting this podcast as a contributing commentator. You’ll hear my reflection on how I too had rebounded from despair after first losing my mother, before losing my job and my health. ------------------------ “Where Are They Now?” is a special co-production between One in a Billion and WHRB (Harvard Radio Broadcasting). It is a 6-part series featuring one-on-one interviews with Harvard graduates who draw lessons from their campus experience and personal insight from their current career to give you a taste of their trailblazing journey. “Where Are They Now” is sponsored exclusively by One in a Billion Productions Inc. (501c3) – an educational media company designed to foster Asian voices and to build bridges between different communities of color.  We believe in the power of personal storytelling to reach a wider and diverse community of audiences for better intercultural understanding.

Sangu Delle: Investing in Dignity, Innovation, and a Healthier Future

Where Are They Now?

Sangu Delle is an entrepreneur, investor, philanthropist, and author who graduated from Harvard College in 2010 and received his JD and MBA from Harvard in 2016. Back in college, Sangu founded the water and sanitation non-profit Cleanacwa. Shortly thereafter, he started Golden Palm Investments (GPI), an investment holding company that builds world class technology companies across the African continent. Sangu is also the CEO of Africa Health Holdings and the author of “Making Futures,” a book about young entrepreneurs doing game-changing work in Africa.In this conversation, Sangu and Gemma unpack the invigorating and rewarding nature of Sangu’s early business ventures as a student, and of his more recent philanthropic projects on the African continent. They also talk about the trials and tribulations of entrepreneurship – about disappointment, and about the very real toll that hard work and high expectations can have on our mental health. Finally, at the end of the episode, contributing commentator Mable Chan (Harvard AM ’93) will offer her own commentary about rebounding from failure.

Sangu Delle, Africa Health Holdings, on building sustainable healthcare in Africa

The Pulse by Wharton Digital Health

In this episode, we sat down with Sangu Delle, the Chairman and CEO of Africa Health Holdings. Africa Health Holdings is focused on building a sustainable healthcare ecosystem in Africa through its network of healthcare facilities that it owns and manages. To date, Africa Health Holdings portfolio companies have served over 510,000 patients through malaria treatment, family planning, community outreach programs, and more. Africa Health Holdings currently has 40 facilities across Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana serving 200,000 patients every year. What we discussed: From a young age, Sangu Delle developed a pan-African consciousness and the desire to create sustainable and positive change in Africa in part from early exposure to African refugees through his doctor and human rights activist father. Given the disproportionate disease burden the African continent faces and the brain drain of Africa-born healthcare workers practicing outside of Africa, Africa faces large gaps in healthcare. The private sector must supplement fiscally-constrained African governments to improve healthcare access, quality, and affordability. Africa presents an attractive investment opportunity given secular population growth in the region outpacing every other country in the world. Investments in Africa have picked up traction recently through major funding for African startups such as FlutterWave, and the acquisition of Nigeria-based payments startup Paystack by Stripe.
