)-- AVentures Capital, a leading early stage venture fund backing teams with R&D in Ukraine and CEE, has announced a USD 500K lead investment into Bookimed. Bookimed connects patients and clinics globally with the goal of providing tailored medical solution. Ever since the service was founded in 2013, over 80K customers have received help from Bookimed.
Having won the CIS market, the company aims to attain a leading position globally. Its team of 70 people, which includes 32 doctors, is endowed with the quality expertise to assist clients with the most complex health challenges.
Eevgeniy Kozlov, Co-Founder of Bookimed: "We have already partnered with more than 260 leading clinics from 26 countries worldwide. Our current goal is to digitalize via our platform the process of selecting the right medical solution based on the individual needs of the patient. The received Investment will be used to strengthen the current R&D team, upgrade the platform to provide tailored recommendations for patients while taking into account the specifics of their health issues, recommended treatment methods, and service options at the receiving clinics where we send patients."
While Bookimed deals with dozens of various diagnoses, the company primarily helps patients with serious issues in the areas of oncology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, and pediatrics. This is a distinctive feature of the service, since most competitors specialize in aesthetic surgery and dentistry, and do not provide full medical support to the clients.

Apart from the rockstar result-oriented team, we are thrilled to back their mission of tackling the important problem in the treatment of patients and increasing the level of medical options awareness. Top 5 regions where people use Bookimed service include the CIS countries, Eastern Europe, the United Kingdom and the USA."
