Abu Dhabi-based startup Alma Health has announced that it has recently acquired a six-figure investment of funding from Hambro Perks to further the company’s expansion across the GCC region. Hambro Perks is a UK-based investment firm that focuses on private technology investing and has played a significant role in helping Alma Health develop its services and continue to offer seamless solutions to people with chronic conditions.
The funding will allow Alma Health the chance to secure numerous new healthcare licenses across various locations in the GCC, including Dubai and Saudi Arabia for example. Saudi Arabia is a major market for Alma Health as roughly 12 million people are living with at least one chronic condition and the Abu Dhabi-based company believes they can play a big role. Alma Health strives to transform the typical healthcare experience for people with chronic conditions. The digital health company provides them with a fully digital experience, from a virtual doctor consultation at the tap of a button, to prescription delivery and ongoing care.
Since its launch in mid-2020, Alma Health has received funding from other distinguished investors including the Oman Technology Fund – Wadi, an Omani sovereign wealth fund, Annex Investments, as well as strategic angel investors from Saudi and the UAE. Alongside its diverse selection of licensed doctors, Alma Health is accredited by a number of reputable insurance providers in the region such as Thiqa, Daman, NAS Neuron and Oman Insurance.
