Kenyan E-Health Startup TIBU Raises Seed Funding Round to Help It Scale
By Tom Jackson
Kenyan e-health startup TIBU, a digital platform that decentralises primary outpatient care to bring it directly to patients, has raised a seed funding round to help it scale its operations.
Conceived in 2016, built in 2019, and launched to the public in early 2020, TIBU is an on-demand platform that connects people to healthcare workers in real-time, who deploy to a location and time of the patient’s choosing.
The startup has served over 10,000 patients since its launch, rolled out a comprehensive home-based vaccination service alongside Amref Health Africa, launched health packages focused on chronic diseases, and secured a variety of key partnerships, and it has now taken on a seed funding round to help it grow further.
