Healthcare start-up Avi Medical GmbH (Avi Medical) has raised €50 million in fresh capital in a Series B financing round. The round was led by Balderton Capital, with existing investors including Heal Capital, Addition, Picus Capital, Vorwerk Ventures, Eurazeo and 3VC also among the backers. A Taylor Wessing team led by Berlin-based VC expert Norman Röchert advised Balderton Capital on all aspects of the financing round.
The business model of the Munich-based company aims to digitize family medical surgeries into a hybrid model: The formal processes of a visit to the practice are carried out without exception by modern IT applications, and additional telemedical services supplement the personal exchange between doctor and patient. In 2020, the start-up launched a practice based on this concept for the first time. By the end of 2022, the founders plan to operate 20 Medical Avi practices in Munich, Hamburg and Berlin.
Balderton Capital is a London-based venture capital firm focused exclusively on supporting the most significant technology companies founded in Europe. Since its founding in 2000, it has raised ten funds totaling more than $4.5 billion and invested in more than 230 companies.
