Egyptian Mental Health Platform TakeStep to Expand into GCC
After raising a seed round, the tech-powered platform is now set up to expand into the Gulf.
Since 2018, TakeStep has utilised its board of certified mental health professionals to support over 150,000 patients through addiction and other general psychiatry cases across the Middle East. In light of the work they've done, they have been able to raise an undisclosed Seed funding round from a pair of angel investors, including Dr. Mohammed Hossam Khedr, who is set to join the company as a Managing Partner.
“This is truly an exciting time for TakeStep. I am personally thrilled about joining this exceptional team, and cannot wait to see how the company will grow in the coming months," Dr. Khedr said. Previously, Dr. Khedr has built over 22 years of experience in managing businesses and investments. He also held the position of Managing Partner at Endure Capital VC. "TakeStep is very intelligently using technology to transform patients’ healing processes, and has a significant impact on the community.”
The TakeStep board will also be joined by Ahmed Hossam, Vice-Chair at The International Gamification Confederation and Gamification Guest Lecturer at Oakland University for AI PHD Researchers. TakeStep plans to use this investment to expand its operations into Gulf nations.
