Sekoia international growth
Sekoia attracts € 3m Series B investment from SPG and venture capital firm Northcap. The battle is on to conquer lead position within point of care software for the care home sector.
“We regard Sekoia as an interesting product that not only addresses a growing market, but also works on a likeable challenge to improve the care sector, in concordance with our values. We are looking forward to working with the company’s committed management team and impact the development and expansion at hand”, says Susanne and Peter Gjørup, who co-owns SPG. Peter is former CEO and co-owner of TOP-TOY, the leading toys retailer in the Nordic region.
The investment underlines Sekoia’s market position in the top tier, having spent the last 3 years expanding into larger scale sales and now have more than 10,000 users in Denmark, Sweden and England.
“This is a signal to all existing clients that we will continue to deliver on the ambition to become the world’s best point of care platform. We are now strengthening our international focus to follow up on the good start in the new markets”, CEO Mads Fischer Rasmussen explains.
Quality improvements and fewer mistakes within care
For the client Sekoia means better-quality workflow to make up for the very little industry innovation over the last years. Digitisation helps moving precious time from the back office into priority care tasks. Something that makes great sense to most nursing homes and their caregivers.
Behind Sekoia is a substantial founder group and the former Just Eat CEO and angel investor, Klaus Nyengaard. Further the group of owners includes Danish based venture capital firm, Northcap, who led the Series A investment early 2015.
“We salute the strengthened team and look forward to really cracking the internationalisation code. Sekoia is one of those domain products that you really want to succeed, as they bring quality and efficiency together in an attractive mix”, General Partner in Northcap, Kim Wiencken adds.
