Company Snapshot

In Brazil, almost half the people in need of dialysis treatment fail to receive services. Trained as a cardiologist at the University of Tokyo, Tohoru is determined to solve this problem. He bought his first dialysis clinic in 2003 and gave up his medical career to devote himself to building a dialysis treatment company — Nefrocare. He has since launched 10 clinics and helped more than 1,000 Brazilians receive care. Nefrocare is quickly achieving both a high level of efficiency and economies of scale, and Tohoru has his sights set on expanding to markets across South America and Africa.

Endeavor and Nefrocare

With the assistance of local mentors and introductions, Tohoru has professionalized HR processes and gained valuable auditing assistance.
