Kuwait-based social health network Tabeeby secured $770,000 in investment from Ground One Ventures, a UK-based private investment company.
Founded in 2012, Tabeeby aims to facilitate access to healthcare and foster communication between patients, doctors and healthcare providers across the GCC countries.
According to a statement from Tabeeby, the investment from Ground One Ventures will be used to enhance Tabeeby’s healthcare technology platform and deliver new innovations.
The website allows consumers to make online appointments and private consultations with doctors.
Tabeeby started out as an online medical directory in the middle east and then grew into a social health network, with more than 5000 doctors and healthcare providers.
