Swedish health-tech app, Doktor.se, closed an investment round, raising SEK 480 million in capital.
The Swedish startup is one of Sweden's largest players in the digital healthcare industry along with Min Doktor.
Founded in 2016, Doktor.se aims to streamline and create better access to Swedish healthcare by offering both physical and digital care.
The exact sum of investment was SEK 481.5 million during the capital round where Carnegie and Handelsbanken had been advisers.
The capital raised will form the basis for the company's future expansion, where the care offering will be strengthened, for example through health centres and the continued development of digital patient meetings.
In addition, the establishment of Doktor.se's technical platform will scale internationally.
Doktor.se has currently set up platform collaboration with Vivabem, a digital healthcare company active in Brazil and AniCura, and a digital veterinary app which is available in Sweden.
“Our platform technology is a full-scale solution and we are seeing increased demand from all over the world. We are currently discussing launches in four major markets within the next year,” said Martin Lindman, founder and CEO of Doktor.se.
A Record High
In 2019, patient visits to the digital healthcare companies passed a million visitors in Sweden, and have since had exponential growth within the health-tech sector. This record high comes after the outbreak of COVID-19.
“We started Doktor.se with the mission to be able to offer more people safe care by making health care frictionless and more effective. The global crisis that is currently underway clearly shows the transformation that the system needs to undergo in order to make it sustainable and future-proof,” said Lindman.
We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
