TakeStep, an Egyptian e-health startup, has raised seed funding to extend its operations to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) area in the near future.
Since 2018, TakeStep has helped over 150,000 patients in the Middle East with addiction and other general psychiatry cases, thanks to its board of accredited mental health professionals.
They were able to raise an undisclosed Seed funding round from a pair of angel investors, including Dr. Mohammed Hossam Khedr, who will join the company as a Managing Partner, as a result of their efforts.
“For TakeStep, this is an incredibly exciting moment. I’m ecstatic to be a part of such a great team, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the business develops in the coming months “Dr. Khedr expressed his thoughts.
Dr. Khedr has more than 22 years of experience in corporate and investment management.
He was also a Managing Partner at Endure Capital Venture Capital. “TakeStep is transforming patients’ healing processes through technology and has a huge effect on the community.”
Ahmed Hossam, Vice-Chair of the International Gamification Confederation and Gamification Guest Lecturer at Oakland University for AI PHD Researchers, will also join the TakeStep board.
TakeStep intends to use this investment to expand into Gulf countries.
