The Middle East’s Leading Health-Tech Startup Vezeeta Scores $40 Million in Series D

Vezeeta generates 4 million annual appointments, tripling year over year.

Vezeeta, Middle East and Africa’s leading digital health-tech platform just scored $40 Million in its Series D round led by Gulf Capital, the Middle East’s largest and most active alternative asset management firm. The round had strong support from existing investor, Saudi Technology Ventures (STV), who led Vezeeta’s Series C round in September 2018.

The fundraising supports Vezeeta’s mission to empower patients in Middle Eastern and African markets with its integrated digital healthcare platform. Vezeeta has grown to become a mainstream digital leader of health-tech solutions, enabling patients to search, book and review the best doctors and medical services in just one minute.

Currently operating in 50 cities across Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Lebanon, the platform generates 4 million annual appointments, tripling year over year. “Building a global healthcare powerhouse requires a strong investor base to support and drive continuous innovation and disruptive solutions. Gulf Capital provides us the perfect synergy for our future plans to diversify and expand our product portfolio on a global scale,” says Amir Barsoum, Founder and CEO of Vezeeta.

With the support of STV in 2018, Vezeeta was able to bolster its expansion plans primarily in Saudi Arabia. "Leveraging our technology, we have helped patients tap into the power of choice, and the power of information, to access the kind of healthcare that our users deserve. We will continue to cater to local health-related pains while expanding our product portfolio to many more markets,” adds Barsoum.

Raising more than $63 million in funds since its founding in 2012, Vezeeta’s cohort of other high-profile investors also includes BECO Capital, Silicon Badia, Vostok New Ventures, Crescent Enterprises’ CE-Ventures and Endeavour Catalyst.
