Great news breaking from our incubee UpHill: only one month after receiving a €1M EU grant, the Portuguese health company just announced a €3.5M ($4.1M) seed round led by Brigheye and MustardSeedMAZE, raised with renewed commitments from their early supporters: Caixa Capital, Luz Saúde and Bynd. This new round will have a profound impact in UpHill’s internationalisation plans for its platform, that will also benefit from changes thanks to the money that just got in: UpHill wants to make the platform more automated, integrated and useful. Eduardo Rodrigues, CEO of UpHill, told us a bit more about this new round and his excitment about it:
“We launched UpHill soon after becoming physicians with a clear and challenging mission: to eliminate asymmetries in medical knowledge and improve care quality for patients, while empowering health teams to do more while at their best. Our journey since then has been far from smooth sailing. However, we have been fortunate to work with and learn from the most bright and devoted people: everyone at UpHill, the team that is making this the ride of a lifetime.”
We congratulate UpHill on this great achievement!
