Our participation in the eHealth HUB EC2VC Session helped us in two ways. First, we had a unique opportunity to present in front of over twenty VCs. This allowed us to raise their interest and then continue conversations off stage. The EC2VC initiated in-depth discussions with several Venture Capital firms, one of which even committed to invest in our latest round of funding. Secondly, as a winner of that edition we’ve received a solid marketing coverage.Piotr Orzechowski
Infermedica was founded in 2012 to address the problem of so-called “online diagnosis” based on subjective and often inaccurate web search results. Our mission is to help patients find the most accurate and high-quality information about symptoms and conditions, and to connect every patient with the right care. We’re a group of over 50 medical doctors, data scientists and software engineers building one of the most advanced AI platforms for patient triage and preliminary medical diagnosis. We are dedicated to providing our solutions to traditional healthcare organizations such as health systems, insurance companies and clinics. To date, our products have been used by more than 3.5M patients worldwide and we are proud to be working with some of the leading health organizations in Europe such as Allianz Partners, Dovera, PZU or Medis.
How eHealth HUB EC2VC made a difference in our story
As an European digital health startup, we were selected and took part to the eHealth HUB EC2VC Session at HIMSS Europe at Sitges, Spain, 2018. Our participation in the EC2VC Session in Sitges helped us in two ways. First of all, we had a unique opportunity to present in front of over twenty VCs. This allowed us to raise their interest and then continue conversations off stage. The EC2VC initiated in-depth discussions with several Venture Capital firms, one of which even committed to invest in our latest round of funding. Secondly, as a winner of that edition we’ve received a solid marketing coverage which also contributed to our fundraising efforts and promoted our company.
I would say, we want to continue our engagement with eHealth HUB Service and participate in future networking and social events!
Any tips for digital health startuppers?
Two founder traits that I believe are important in any fundraising effort are perseverance and honesty. Honesty, however, should never undermine your ability to sell the company’s vision in an exciting way. You need to realize that not every investor will find your idea attractive or even appealing. It will take a lot of time to find the right partner for you. When that happens don’t be tempted to present things in better shapes and colors than they really are. Be brutally honest about the challenges that are ahead of you, and I’m sure that every good investor will reward your approach.
eHealth HUB team wishes to the Infermedica Team good luck!
