Singapore-based healthcare startup GetDoc has closed a $1.6-million pre-Series A round led by its adviser Alan Wong.
The round was also joined by other high net-worth individuals, including Vivien Chou of Chou Wen Hsien Estate and Janifer Yeo, the group CEO of retail chain JYSK Group.
According to the announcement, the funds will be used for product development and market expansion. The startup plans to expand into Thailand next.
“We are aware that we are contending in a space where is there is a lot of marketplace directories… While others are still promising on MVPs (minimum viable products), we have existing services and solutions that have helped the startup achieve breakeven in 2017.
“With more than 60,000 registered downloads and more than 1,600 clinics listed on GetDoc, the listing offers content curated by NHS (National Health Service, the publicly funded national healthcare system for England),” said GetDoc founder and CEO Woon Shung Toon.
