Selfapy, a Berlin, Germany-based digital health startup, raised a seven-figure funding round.
Backers included High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF), IBB Beteiligungsgesellschaft and business angels.
The amount of deal was not disclosed.
The company intends to use the funds to grow in the B2C and B2B sector.
Led by Nora Blum, CEO and Co-founder, Kati Bermbach, COO and founder, and Farina Schurzfeld, CMO and Co-founder, Selfapy offers scientifically proven online therapy courses that make care accessible to people with mental disorders such as depression, eating disorders and anxiety. At Selfapy, people suffering from a psychological disorder can fill out a form online and schedule a personal consultation either over the phone or via chat within minutes.
Users receive access to a nine-week therapy program that takes place online, whilst a clinical psychologist supports them throughout the course with weekly conversations via telephone or chat.
Selfapy started with its first program, the online course against depression, in summer 2016. Since then, the startup has launched further therapy programs to also help more than 2,000 people with anxiety, stress and eating disorders.
