MyHealth Africa, a Startup Connecting Patients With Health Specialists Across the Globe, Lands $1 Million Funding
By Annie Njanja
Kenya-based MyHealth Africa, an integrated healthcare platform changing how people access medical services by connecting patients with local and international health specialists and hospitals, is growing its reach in Africa, and plans to further expand in the Middle East and South Asia next year.
The growth plan comes against the backdrop of $1 million seed funding it has raised in a round led by GIIG Africa Fund, with participation from Japanese-based Samurai VC, a family office and existing investors. This brings the total amount raised by the startup, which received its pre-seed funding last year, to $1.3 million.
The new funding also follows a Top HealthTech Startup in Africa award the startup clinched in June this year from the Global Startup Awards (GSA) Africa, an exclusive vehicle for the GIIG Africa Fund to find, fund and scale the continent’s innovative startups.
