The Series A funding round was led by NYC based Modus Capital, along with participation from 212 Capital, QSTP, Kasamar Holdings, Dharmendra Ghai (Health Tech Angel), Innoway and others.
Kareem Elsirafy, a partner at Modus Capital who will be joining Meddy’s board, said…
“We see Meddy as the up and coming leader in providing booking services to clinics in the GCC. Haris and the team have proven they clearly understand the needs of their customers, and the positive feedback and value-added they provide have created a very strong foundation for rapid regional growth. We’re excited to have Meddy in our portfolio and look forward to supporting them in their continued growth.”

Meddy has facilitated more than a hundred thousand bookings to date, generating over $50 million in Billings to hospitals and clinics in Qatar and UAE.
