Tej Kohli is a man who wears many hats, but all of them are visionary and ways to make the world a better place for future generations. One such hat that Mr Kohli wears is of an investor. While he is known for his real estate investments, biotechnology is the other area close to his heart. He believes that while the pact investment vehicle focuses on exponential growth, it also promises to build a better world that has a positive and sustainable impact. As a passionate investor and championing entrepreneurs, philanthropist Mr Kohli has been funding Detraxi.
What Is Detraxi?
The company provides biotechnology solutions that can solve significant global challenges. Some of the issues that Detraxi, an organization in the USA, is working on are
- Ending global blood shortage
- Ending the organ donation crisis
- Enhanced diagnostics
The organization was established in 2001. Since then, it has been working on various projects, like organ study, living heart study, limb preservation study, and organ study with United States Naval Group at Walter and starting and finishing pre-clinical trials on these projects.
Why Investor Tej Kohli Funds Detraxi?
Is it possible to have a future death that can be prevented globally due to the blood shortage? Despite 108,000,000 blood donations globally every year, there is still a shortage of blood, but still, 82 per cent of the global population faces a blood shortage. In such a scenario, where proper refrigeration of blood can stay viable for 35 to 42 days, and with the artificial blood market predicted to be $5.2 billion and increase to $17.7 billion by 2027, Detraxi is working hard to make artificial blood possible.
Detraxi is also working on using biotechnology and the latest AI-backed technology to allocate organs from donors to patients. The work to enable matching patients with donors globally warrants that viable organs are not discarded, thus saving millions of lives annually.
So, when a company is working hard to ensure a better and sustainable future with the help of biotechnology and AI, it is difficult for the Artificial Intelligence entrepreneur Tej Kohli to avoid getting allured into such an organization. The impetus by the company to deploy proprietary biotechnology solutions makes the company a viable one, which has propelled Mr Kohli to invest in a pre-IPO company like Detraxi.
Mr Tej Kohli: Thinking Beyond Now
Being a philanthropist that propagates a better future for the younger generation and reduces poverty in underserved communities, Mr Tej Kohli always looks for investments which will serve humans. The result is funding organizations like Detraxi, starting NGOs like Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation and Tej Kohli Cornea Institute, backing cornea ailment studies, and expanding into venture philanthropy that prints 3D bionic arms.
The man believes in creating a legacy beyond himself but one that will live on among the people he helped.
