BECO Capital Leads a $5 Million Round of Funding for Vezeeta
Regional tech venture capital firm BECO Capital announced that it has led a new $5 million round of funding for Vezeeta, an Egypt-based healthcare technology startup. This marked BECO Capital’s first investment in Egypt. Vezeeta is pioneering the shift to automated physician, clinic, and hospital bookings. Available on desktop and as a mobile app, Vezeeta eases the accessibility of booking a doctor’s appointment, allowing the user to choose a doctor by specialty, geographic area, insurance purveyor and fees. With more than 20,000 patient reviews and ratings available on the platform, users can readily determine the doctor with the best medical service and the least waiting time. Once the doctor is chosen, the patient can either book automatically from the website, the mobile app, or contact the call center. Additional investors in the round include Vostok New Ventures, TDF, and Silicon Badia. Currently, Vezeeta covers three Egyptian cities with ambitious expansion plans to integrate additional MENA countries in the region, moving into the UAE, KSA, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Kuwait, and Qatar over the next 12 to 18 months.
