MedEasy, a Dhaka-based online pharmacy startup, has managed to raise $750,000 in seed funding to expand services.
"The funds will allow refining operations, enhancing features and boosting customer acquisition alongside research and development," said Co-founder and CEO Arefin Zaman.
The startup's future plan is to introduce subscription-based features, a digital vital sign monitoring system and an appointment-booking marketplace, according to a press release.
The seed funding round was led by Seedstars International Ventures, Doha Tech Angels, Startup Bangladesh Limited, Accelerating Asia, and nVentures.
"MedEasy's nuanced understanding of Bangladesh's unique challenges caught our attention," said Patricia Sosrodjojo, general partner at Seedstars International Ventures.
"They aren't just digitising processes; they're reshaping healthcare experiences for a demographic often overlooked."
MedEasy provides a much-needed solution in the Bangladesh market and, with proper focus and strategy, it should make a significant impact on the lives of Bangladeshis, said Sami Ahmed, managing director of Startup Bangladesh.
