Stockholm-based digital healthcare provider Doktor.se has secured €29.5 million in funding from Tencent Holdings.
This funding is an extension to a round announced back in May that saw the firm take home €50 million. Including this extension, Doktor.se has garnered approximately €160.5 million in funding.
Martin Lindman, CEO & co-founder of Doktor.se, says: We are excited to welcome Tencent Holdings in our mission to provide the technology which enables safe and accessible healthcare for everyone, making the experience frictionless and efficient. Tencent shares our belief that we can give patients faster, better care in our unique combination of physical and digital healthcare. We look forward to working with them as we expand internationally.
The startup employs nurses, specialist nurses, general practitioners, specialist doctors, psychologists, counsellors and physiotherapists at its digital and physical healthcare centres.
Currently, Doktor.se’s telemedicine platform is used in countries across Europe through veterinary care chain AniCura, in Belgium through a partnership with telecommunications group Proximus and in Brazil with the digital healthcare provider ViBE.
The funds will help Doktor.se to further expand its digi-physical services by acquiring physical healthcare services to integrate into its digital platforms. By the end of 2021, the company aims to be operating in more than seven countries.
