Find My Doctor, a Karachi-based healthcare marketplace startup, raised an undisclosed amount in pre-series A funding from TPL e-Venture.
Elevator Pitch: Healthcare delivered to your doorstep.
Tell me more: It’s no news that the healthcare sector in Pakistan is overburdened. And not just because of COVID. However, it did make it worse.
Now, if you need to see a healthcare professional, should you rush to the hospital? It seems to be overkill if all you have is joint pain or need to get a lab test.
What if you can get health care from the comfort of your home?
Well, that’s the value proposition of Find My Doctor.
You can get doctor’s visits, lab tests, and medicine delivered to you. Not to mention, the app makes it quick and easy to find a doctor.
It also offers a Sehat Card that covers your hospitalization expense for the entire year.
You should know: Find My Doctor was founded in 2016 by Saad Siddiqui. It claims to have served over 250,000 customers to date.
In 2017, it received seed funding of $200,000 from undisclosed investors.
Before you go: Find My Doctor is currently offering services in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Multan, Peshawar, and Hyderabad, with plans to expand to ten more cities by the end of this year.
Zoom out: Find My Doctor intends to use the funds to open dark stores, improve technology and hire new talent. It is also planning on enhancing its insurance-related services with the support of TPL Insurance.
It faces competition from Oladoc, Healthwire, Ailaaj, and Marham.
