Redbird, a Ghanaian health tech company that enables doctors and patients to display the specifics of test results at any time, revealed that it has raised a $1.5 million seed investment.
Johnson & Johnson Foundation, Newton Partners (via the Imperial Venture Fund), and Founders Factory Africa were among the investors in the round.
This takes the total sum earned for the organization to $2.5 million.
The startup, which was founded in 2018, allows patients to access their digital health records via five-minute assessments.
Its pharmacy platform, which includes 10 rapid assessments, is currently available in over 350 neighborhood pharmacies.
“Joining forces with Johnson & Johnson Impact Ventures and Newtown Partners is a dream come true for us.
“Our vision of revolutionising health monitoring is strengthened by Newtown and Imperial’s experience in African supply chains, as well as Johnson & Johnson’s long-standing commitment to improve treatment for the world’s most vulnerable people through technology,” said Redbird co-founder and CEO Patrick Beattie.
The seed investment will be used to expand Redbird’s operations in Ghana and to enter new markets.
