Global investment backing fuels Altibbi’s expansion

Altibbi, an award-winning online medical platform and one of the strongest emerging brands in telemedicine, has secured AED10 million worth of funding from leading regional investors to accelerate growth and strategically expand its brand offering.
Altibbi has received investment funds from Middle East Venture Partners (MEVP), DASH Ventures and from other investors in the USA, Australia, Europe, Lebanon and Jordan.
Creators of high-quality online medical content, Altibbi is also home to two leading apps – Altibbi and Altibbi Doctors. The Altibbi app, which is available to all users in the GCC, is currently available on IOS and Android platforms and offers a unique healthcare service that allows consumers to connect with doctors in real time for consultations through high-definition voice calling. Altibbi Doctors is a physician-specific app that gives doctors the opportunity to meet and connect with other medical professionals.
Speaking more about Altibbi and its expansion plans, Hussein Abdelkarim, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer at Altibbi, said, “Within a short period, Altibbi as a brand has filled a big gap in the market for a reliable source for Arabic medical terms. There was a lack of knowledge and information about medical issues in the Arab world to which Altibbi developed a medical dictionary and has been the foundation of the online platform today.”
“Thanks to the support of our investors, we will now be able to build on the legacy and success of Altibbi and be able to provide our users with improved products and services including the rapid growth of our recently launched Altibbi consumer app. Our aim is to become leaders in the telemedicine field and these funds will allow us to extend our services beyond the GCC region and enable us to position ourselves stronger in the global market,” stated Abdelkarim.
