Qured, an on-demand health technology platform which provides affordable at-home healthcare at patients’ convenience, is now seeking 500,000 through its equity crowdfunding round on Crowdcube. The company reported that its aiming to democratize private care, becoming the go-to platform for both patients and practitioners. After a successful launch in London, Qured is preparing a UK roll-out.
The company reported it experienced major growth in its first ten months where it received more than £1.4 million in 2017 following a successful crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs, with support from 555 investors keen to be involved in the revolutionary approach to primary healthcare; this includes its Board Member, Dan Warne, Deliveroo’s UK and IE Managing Director. Qured explained that the service now covers Greater London and has achieved over 30,000 downloads, 6000 registered patients, and 450 registered doctors. It provides a health service that is up to 40% cheaper than existing private healthcare and offers flexible appointments at a time and location to suit the patient, rather than the practitioner. Dan Warne, MD UK/IE of Deliveroo and key investor of Qured, stated:
“I loved Qured’s founding team and their vision for a business that operates in a space ripe for new direction. It’s only natural that they’re keen to serve a broader population and extend its services, especially as there’s such a demand and limited competition at present. The confidence I have in the concept, and the ability of the team to execute and deliver it, speaks for itself and I’m looking forward to being part of what’s set to be an incredible journey.”
Funds from the Crowdcube round will be used to continue Qured’s expansion. Since its launch, the initiative has raised nearly £320,000. It is set to close mid-July.
