CarePoint, a tech health startup secures $10 Million to scale operations

CarePoint, a tech-driven health startup has raised $10 million to grow its footprint across the African continent. The seed round was led by Breyer Capital, Beyond Capital Ventures (BVC) and others.  

At the moment the startup has a presence in Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana and recently Egypt.  

Dr. Sangu Delle, the company’s founder and CEO in a recent interview with TechCrunch said, “The micro-clinics will have, at most, 12 employees, including a nurse. The patients will consult with doctors virtually.”

“We are taking this route because we realized that as much as the mobile subscription in Africa is great and growing, if you look at it from an internet penetration perspective, so many people are still locked out because they cannot afford mobile data.” 

“These clinics are a way of democratising access, and taking quality healthcare closer to the people while making it affordable to them too,” said Delle.

Eva Yazhari, a general partner at BVC, said, “CarePoint is at the forefront of creating solutions through its three core pillars of a scaled network of healthcare facilities, a strong technology backbone, and patient-centred care highlighted by the first Africa-focused healthcare data repository.”

Delle is not new in the investing game. He founded CarePoint after he spend some time as an investor and CEO at the Golden Palm Investments, a venture firm with an interest in early-stage opportunities in Africa, where he still serves as the chairman.
