Techstars accelerator program alums, drfocused and PlanSnap, have recently launched campaigns on equity crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube. drfocused, which has designed software to help doctors complete their work faster, is currently seeking £300,000, while social planning app PlanSnap is looking to raise £250,000.
“We are building the Doctors’ Digital Back Office. Our first product is cloud-based HR SaaS for medical admin/rostering. It allows doctors and hospitals to complete admin paperwork, communicate securely, and organise clinical work from a phone/tablet. We provide insights to clinical managers using predictive data analytics to improve patient safety and clinical efficiency.”
PlanSnap describes itself as a frictionless social planning app that gets everyone to agree on the details of plans in just a few taps. The company shared:
“We’ve all experienced the frustration of getting friends together: we found that it can take over 9 apps, 22 app switches, 77 swipes, 13 minutes on the phone and 10 texts to make a plan. We know that 40% of the time planning fails completely.”
PlanSnap also reports that its app is based on the insight that every organized person knows, “to make plans happen you must quickly get everyone to agree on the details – who, what, where, and when.”
Speaking about the duo’s campaigns, Crowdcube stated:
“We are excited to announce that two alumni of the world famous Techstars accelerator program have launched campaigns on Crowdcube – drfocused and PlanSnap! Techstars is widely known as one of the best startup accelerators in the world and with an acceptance rate of 1-2%, it is often cited as being harder to get into than Harvard. The programs are run all over the world, from their US roots in Colorado to cities like Cape Town and Tel Aviv, Techstars has a truly global presence. Their alumni portfolio includes more than 1,000 companies that have a combined market cap of an incredible $8.1 billion worldwide such as DigitalOcean, Timehop, PillPack, Class Pass, Osper and SendGrid, which is set to be their first IPO.”
Crowdcube went on to add:
“At Crowdcube, we are incredibly excited to be supporting these Techstars alumni and delighted to be able to give our investors the opportunity to invest alongside one of the most renowned startup accelerators in the world.”
So far drfocused has successfully secured more than £100,000 from over 125 investors. PlanSnap has attracted over £150,000 from nearly 170 investors. Both campaigns are set to close next month.
