Healthtech company Healthtracka secures funding from Akazi

NIGERIA – Healthtracka, a digital health platform that allows users to book appointment for at-home testing. The health tests offered include COVID-19 PCR test, sexually transmitted disease test, and full body checkup, has received funding from Akazi Capital.

Co-founded in 2021 by Ifeoluwa Dare-Johnson (CEO) and Victor Amusan (Head of Product), the platform provides Nigerians with the best at-home health tests, allowing them to keep on top of their health.

“We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to invest in Healthtracka! Ifeoluwa’s mission to decentralize lab testing and put the customer’s healthcare back in their control is truly inspiring,” Akazi Capital said in a statement.

“The traction they have shown in just a few short months has been astounding, and we know that Ifeoluwa will continue to impress us all over the next few years. She has built a great team and they are expanding their footprint. They have their eye set on expanding beyond Nigeria, and we are excited about seeing their business become the trusted health platform for lab testing in more African countries.”

Akazi Capital is a sector-agnostic crowd-powered impact fund that invests up to $250,000 in early-stage startups owned and run by female entrepreneurs in sub-Saharan Africa.

“At Akazi, we invest in entrepreneurs that are solving pressing problems and building companies that leave the world a better place. Healthtracka is doing exactly that. Improving the state of healthcare in Africa relies on early detection of medical conditions and appropriate treatment, and they are playing an important role in facilitating this and improving the lives of many Nigerians in the process,” it added.

Ifeoluwa has shown to be a force to be reckoned with since its inception in May 2021, in the midst of a pandemic. They have provided excellent customer service to hundreds of consumers in Nigeria. They are completely in sync with their clients, and as they expand their business, they are continuously listening to their input.

Healthtracka partners United States-based insurance tech startup Fleri Inc.

Healthtracka said it has partnered with Fleri Inc., a United States-based insurance tech startup enabling immigrants to provide healthcare for their loved ones back home.

Under the partnership agreement, Healthtracka will provide at-home health tests for Fleri’s customers as they travel into Africa. According to the statement released by Healthtracka, Fleri’s customers would have access to at-home lab tests, doctor’s result review, and status update notification.

Both Healthtracka and Fleri are part of Techstars Toronto’s October 2021 cohort.

Healthtracka has raised an undisclosed amount of money over two rounds from three investors. Expectedly, Techstars Toronto and Techstars are among the investors.
