BookDoc Receives New Strategic Partner
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 21 (Bernama) — BookDoc, an online platform that connects patients to healthcare professionals, received an injection of an undisclosed amount of US dollars, led by a family member of Stanley Ho, the Macau billionaire tycoon.
Headquartered in Malaysia, BookDoc welcomed the double-digit millions dollar investments, describing the member of the Dr Stanley Ho family as a strategic investor after Prince Abdul Qawi of the Brunei Royal family who invested in the company barely a year ago.
In a statement, the healthcare technology startup said the new investment would also bring deep cross-border business network and valuable multi-disciplinary experiences.
“BookDoc is really fortunate to have a strategic investor who can offer great insights into the unique business environment the company operates in.
“It will help us penetrate markets faster and more effectively,” said Founder and Chief Executive Officer Datuk Chevy Beh.
With the additional funding, BookDoc would be in a stronger position to expand regionally in Southeast Asia, with more products and features targeted at the business-to-business (B2B) market.
