Nigerian venture capital (VC) firm Ventures Platform has invested $100 000 into Lagos-based healthtech startup MDaaSб═Global.
Ventures Platform founder and CEO Kola Aina announcedб═the investment on Tuesday (4 September) in a post on Medium.
MDaaS Global was founded in 2016 by CEOб═Oluwasoga Oni, CFOб═Genevieve Barnard Oni, supply chain manager Joe McCord and Nigeria country managerб═Opeyemi Ologun.
The healthtech startup wants to build Africa’s largest network of low-cost private medical diagnostic and primary care facilities.
Inб═the Mediumб═post, Aina said MDaaS Global’s first centre — which the startup built in Ibadan, Nigeria — had broken even after five months, in addition to growing revenue by 500% since January.
“In the past four months, we have only gotten more convinced that Soga, Genevieve, Joe, and Opeyemi will succeed and we share their commitment to building a future where African consumers have access to better healthcare, no matter their income level,” saidб═Aina.
We are incredibly excited to share that we are now part of the @vplatformhub family! Thank you to the entire Ventures Platform team for believing in our big vision to build modern, tech-enabled healthcare for Africa’s next billion. https://t.co/B8jR5uPg3F
