About Us

We are a young family owned business that has this

crazy idea it can be a drug company !

We are a young family owned business that has this crazy idea it can be a drug company ! We are founded by an entrepreneurial family that are trying to increase access to low cost drugs for the veterinary market . We are borrowing strategies and resources from the human drug world and hope to increase the speed of access for the animals of the world to great low costs drugs!

Our founding family has a long history with the African continent and hence our name, Kigelia is the name for the sausage tree. We would have loved to use Acacia which is the native tree to our favourite place on earth the Serengeti Plains , unfortunately someone else had that great idea already.

If you browse through our site or get in touch with us you’ll realise we like to have fun and believe business should be fun! . However we also realise that some good old fashioned grey hairs are very useful in your team. We believe we have assembled some of the best people in the veterinary space to help us deliver on our promises and help us through our development pipeline.

We are huge believers in collaboration and our first drug in development is just that, through a great combination of skills and partners who are really helping us understand the space and sector. We can talk about them at this stage but watch this space ….

You’ve probably realised this about more than business for us , so take a look at our community section to see some of the fantastic organisations that we work with and  support.
