Romanian HealthTech SanoPass aims to raise €3M
The Romanian Healthtech startup SanoPass launches new funding round and aims to raise €3 million to accelerate growth over the next 2 years.
SanoPass is a healthtech platform that unifies and digitizes access to health. It provides access to over 11,000 doctors, guaranteeing appointments with national coverage in a maximum of 48 hours. Currently, the service is available in over 1,000 private clinics and 150 gyms. In 2021, SanoPass recorded more than 10,000 medical services and 5,000 gym sessions each month, reaching over 30,000 users.
“The traditional model of accessing medical services has become a barrier to patients’ access to doctors and specialists. It’s time to find new models of packages of medical and prevention services, focused on the individual needs of patients and at the same time complementary to public and private insurance systems. We have identified the need for a third-party platform, to connect patients with healthcare and wellness providers,” said Andrei Vasile and Delia Iliasa, SanoPass co-managing partners.
Report: Which are the leading HealthTech startups in Romania?
Founded in 2019, SanoPass is one of the most active startups in the healthtechs in the entire SEE region. It is also listed in the top 3 start-ups in the fitness industry in Romania. No surprise that from an early stage, the company has attracted the support of Cleverage Venture Capital. In previous rounds, SanoPass attracted investments of €400,000 (Seed round, in 2020) and €850,000 (Bridge round, in March 2021) with Cleverage Venture Capital as lead investor in both rounds.
With the new funding round, SanoPass aims to raise €3 million, to accelerate development through client acquisition, integration with partner clinics and fitness operators in order to fully digitize the user experience, and launch its own telemedicine platform.
“The pandemic context has clearly shown the weak points of public health systems and the growing need for efficient and consistently delivered private preventative services,” added the founders.
In addition, SanoPass has launched a number of projects with strategic partners in technology, payments, and insurance, and is testing the applicability of emerging technologies in the field of preventive medicine (blockchain and NFT).
