On Tuesday, HOMAGE, a company providing smart technology home-based care services announced it had raised US$4.15 million in series A.
The Series A round was co-led by investors Golden Gate Ventures and HealthXCapital, South and Southeast Asia’s first healthtech venture capital fund. Existing investors SeedPlus, Juha Pananaan, Lim Dershing and Huang Shao-ning participated inthe round.
Homage provides licensed practitioners a platform through which they can render services on an on-demand basis, providing them with greater flexibility to care for multiple families.
Through a smart matching system, Homage can select the most optimal caregivers based on factors such as illness, professional experience and geography; create more robust databases of patient-generated healthcare data; and provide deeper, better insights for care operators, hospitals and medical service providers, the startup said.
The new funds will be directed toward enhancing the professional training and development programmes for Care Professionals (CarePros) as well as deepening support for Homage’s partner network, as the company looks to support and expand their partners’ care capabilities.
Additionally, Homage will continue to build on the technology and smart matching features at the heart of Homage’s offering, as the company launches from its Singapore home base to grow in new markets in Asia.
