Doctolib, a Paris, France-based booking platform for doctors in Europe, secured €26m in Series C funding.
The round was led by Bpifrance with participation from Accel, Nicolas Brusson, Pierre Kosciusko-Morizet, and Ludwig Klitzsch.
The company, which has raised €50M in total funding, intends to use the capital to consolidate the platform’s leadership position in France and Germany (where it is live in Berlin and will soon launch in three new cities) and to accelerate its longer-term European expansion, to further develops its tools and services, and to recruit more than 150 new members for its team in 2017.
Founded in October 2013 by Stanislas Niox-Chateau, Ivan Schneider and Jessy Bernal, Doctolib has developed a comprehensive Software-as-a-Service solution for doctors to reduce booking management costs and attract new patients through web visibility. With a subscription model, the platform can scale from serving an individual GP to a large hospital, supporting all types of medical businesses.
Patients can browse doctors, see their real-time availability; and then book and manage appointments at any time, on any device for free.
Doctolib currently gathers a community of 17,000 doctors from all specialties, 435 healthcare establishments, including hospitals, clinics and centres, six million visitors per month on its website and employs 300 employees in over 35 cities.
