Your.MD closes funding round for $10 million led by Orkla Ventures
Your.MD looks set to strengthen its position as the “world’s smartest AI health information service” after drumming up funding to the tune of $10 million, the firm has announced.
Orkla Ventures led the fundraising efforts along with other existing Your.MD shareholders including Smedvig Capital AS. The investment comes during a significant period of growth for artificial intelligence (AI) and is intended to put Your.MD in pole position when it comes to health information platforms on the web.
Furthermore, a global expansion is now being planned for Web.MD’s OneStop Health™ platform, which is designed to be a leading global marketplace inhabited by health service providers and product manufacturers, all powered by AI. Some 35 health businesses from around the globe are already signed up for the OneStop Health™ platform and have a direct route to users who need their services and products, as a result.
Your.MD has now set its sights on attracting a total of 100 businesses to the platform by the end of the year, offering users more choice than ever.
Matteo Berlucchi, CEO at Your.MD said that the funding would make a significant impact. He explained: “This invaluable partnership with Orkla enables us to build upon the immense strides we’ve made over the last two years to offer mobile phone users access to personal and trusted pre-primary care guidance, all across the world.”
