Seventure Partners, one of Europe’s leaders in financing innovation, has participated in two financing rounds in Machtfit and Push Doctor, both companies specialising in connected health, reflecting the growth potential in this innovative area.

The investments were made from Seventure’s Health for Life Capital investment vehicle.

Push Doctor, Europe’s largest digital health provider, solves the issue of timely access to a medical practitioner. UK-based, it connects patients to a network of thousands of qualified GPs, giving them access from any smart device to a doctor in as little as six minutes.

Seventure joined Accelerated Digital Ventures, Draper Esprit and Oxford Capital in the £20.21 million Series B round, bringing the total funding for Push Doctor to date in excess of £27 million.  The investment will enable Push Doctor to bring new products to market and further expand the Company’s reach.

Berlin-based Machtfit offers an integrated solution for German employees focused on health, nutrition and fitness. It provides an online platform that brings together health providers, including nutritional coaching, fitness studios and personal trainers, with companies looking to promote employee health in the workplace. Seventure was the lead new investor in the €2.2 million Series A round.

“The field of health and well-being has the potential to benefit hugely from digital technology innovation,” said Isabelle de Cremoux, CEO and Managing Partner of Seventure Partners.  “Health for Life Capital is focusing on investing in game-changing technologies in areas which have the potential to change the global health landscape.”
