MediQuo, an eHealth app operating in Spain and Latin America, has secured an investment of €2 million. The funding came from investors in the health sector as well as from various VC backers and family offices.
Since being launched by doctor, founder and investor Guillem Serra two years ago, mediQuo has raised €4 million in funding. The startup’s app has been installed by nearly 600,000 users and has been able to manage almost one million medical consultations.
The company will soon launch its mediQuo PRO app, which will allow doctors and health professionals to manage consultations online for both their own patients as well as for the users of the app.
Founder Guillem Serra says:
“The recent funding round and the launch of the new app are major boosts to the growth of the platform and to fulfill our purpose to foster the digitisation of medicine and healthcare. We are happy to have Bruno Cuevas, joining the team.
“With his proven track record developing and managing international marketplaces, we are going to take a giant step forward.”
Alongside the investment, mediQuo has also announced that Bruno Cuevas will join the company as co-CEO. Cuevas is the former vice president of global markets at Adevinta/Schibsted, a global group of online marketplaces.
“mediQuo wants to change the way in which patients interact with health professionals, thus improving people’s lives. We have a great team, the required technology, knowledge of the health arena as well as of how to operate marketplaces, and the support of renowned investors within the sector. Our ambition is as great as the company’s potential, and with this funding round we have set out to deeply change the health sector – to place a hospital in each person’s pocket.”
