Ayogo Health Inc., a Vancouver BC-based tech platform for consumers with chronic conditions to engage with their own care, raised $2.5m in Series A funding.
Backers included Merck Global Health Innovation Fund (GHI), Excel Venture Management, and 7Wire Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, David Stevenson of GHI, Caleb Winder of Excel, and Lee Shapiro of 7Wire will join Ayogo’s board of directors.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its research and development and sales and marketing efforts.
