Leading Global Law Firm Baker McKenzie advised OnlineDoctor AG on its successful seed financing round. The investors are Forty:one, Stiftung Startfeld and two Swiss nationally-acclaimed dermatologists.
OnlineDoctor AG is a St.Gallen-based startup and operates e-dermatology-platform onlinedoctor.ch. The platform allows patients to submit photos of skin abnormalities securely to an independent specialist in their region. Patients then receive a professional assessment and recommendation within 48 hours, all for a fee of CHF 55. The platform is currently being used by more than 40 dermatologists across Switzerland. Users include various hospitals, including the Kantonsspital Baden.
It is hoped that this latest round of seed financing will help accelerate growth, speed-up their global reach, and further develop the platform. OnlineDoctor AG also hopes to expand its team in St.Gallen to drive expansion in the DACH region.
Baker McKenzie advised OnlineDoctor AG with a team led by Dr Markus Wolf (Associate / Corporate, Banking & Finance) and assisted by Susanne Liebel-Kotz (Associate / Tax), Dr Julia Schieber (Associate / IT, Data Protection) and David Staehelin (Trainee Lawyer / Corporate).
