The Stockholm-based digital healthcare provider Doktor.se has landed €50 million in funding
The Swedish digital healthcare platform Doktor.se has today raised €50 million in a new investment round. Consensus Asset Management, Norron and Skabholmen were among some of the institutional investors participating in the round as well as other undisclosed ones. In addition to the deal being concluded and the capital raised, one of the early and existing investor Oriola Corporation has agreed to sell a portion of their shares. The funding will be used to further accelerate the company’s growth and expansion globally into new markets, but mainly focusing to boost and improve their services for mental health and chronic illnesses.
Doctor.se is a Swedish e-health company founded by Martin Lindman in 2016, that helps members find, book and get access to the best healthcare. With its B2B focus the company provides its services through video app meetings and phone calls, giving their employees at member companies access to fast and accurate health care.
Martin Lindman also the company’s CEO commented: “Our mission is to provide the technology which enables safe and accessible healthcare for everyone, making the experience frictionless and efficient,”.
Doktor.se is the second most downloaded doctor app in Europe according to Appfigures. Over the course of 2020, Doktor.se provided over 1.2 million patient consultations via their countrywide physical locations and globally available app.
“By making the first contact with patients digital, we save time and resources for the individual and our society at large. More patients receive care faster, while traditional healthcare is relieved. This frees up resources for patients who really need physical appointments. That is why we are so proud to offer this combination of physical and digital healthcare to people and where we believe we can really make a difference,” said Lindman
The company will keep its aggressive expansion of their services with the acquisition of several physical clinics. That said and their services already being used by veterinary care chain AniCura across the Nordics, and establishing a partnership with telecommunications provider Proximus Group in Belgium as well as digital healthcare provider ViBE in Brazil, offers a taste of Doktor’s acceleration so far and how much more is yet to come.
