In Poland, telemedicine is an important pillar of healthcare. 80% of Poles rely on it. We have been active in this area since 2014 and it has grown strongly in recent years. We have extensive experience of what is needed and accepted by patients. More than 300,000 patients rely on our services, and we process around half a million medical inquiries every year. We are a trusted partner for all major Polish insurance companies helping them to operate their health insurance products as well as for the public sector. I am pleased that with Mavie we have a partner to strengthen our base, offer new services and bring our know-how to other markets. I would also like to thank my investors and partners helping me build the company. Aleksander and the team of Black Pearls VC were always there whenever I needed to look at something from a different angle or challenge an idea. At the same time, I always felt they trusted my decisions, which is very important for a founder.”
Paweł Sieczkiewicz, CEO of Telemedi
With Mavie, we have set ourselves the goal of supporting people throughout their lives in taking good care of themselves and maintaining and improving their health. We want to support them at every stage of their lives with prevention and rehabilitation services. That is why we analyze gaps and problem areas in current healthcare and focus on innovative services that take people's health needs into account. Telemedicine has become increasingly important in recent years. Telemedi is one of the largest local providers of digital healthcare solutions, with extensive expertise in which telemedicine solutions are relevant and how they can best reach patients. The company has shown considerable growth in recent years. We see a lot of joint potential in strengthening Telemedi's portfolio with new additional services, but also in expanding into other markets beyond Poland,"
Erich Kruschitz and Lukas Mayrl, Managing Directors of Mavie.
Over the years, Paweł and the team have built Telemedi into a market leader thanks to their relentless execution and drive. Being the first VC investor to join Telemedi's journey back in 2019 actively supporting the growth of the company, we are excited about the partnership with Mavie as the next chapter for Telemedi. This transaction is a blueprint for our high conviction early stage strategy aimed at supporting the best founders from pre-seed to exit."‘
