Lahore-headquartered healthtech Marham has raised $1 million in a seed round led by Pakistan-focused Indus Valley Capital, it told MENAbytes today. The round also includes the participation of Weihan Liew, an angel investor from Southeast Asia.
Founded in 2015, Marham started as a doctor booking platform, enabling patients to book appointments with doctors at different hospitals across Pakistan. It has since evolved into a healthcare platfrom that also allows users to book online consultations (with doctors) and lab tests, and order medicines, through its website or mobile apps.
In the last six years, the startup has expanded its network to have 20,000 doctors from 67 cities of Pakistan. It claims to have served 10 million patients since its launch who visited its website to read doctor reviews, book appointments with them, took online consultations, or asked questions in their free-to-use Q&A forum.
