RoClub, a pioneer in teleoperations with the goal of revolutionising the global healthcare scene, has raised €4 million in a seed fundraising round headed by Better Ventures, strategic angels, and early-stage European and American investors Speedinvest and FJ Labs.

The money comes after a pre-seed fundraising round of more than €2.5 million was recently revealed. With the additional funding, RoClub plans to enhance its remote healthcare service marketplace, hire more foreign staff members, and extend its activities outside the DACH region to include the rest of Europe and the US.

Because of the world's increasing ageing population, there is now a severe shortage of healthcare professionals. Globally, one in six individuals will be 60 years of age or older by 2030, placing a tremendous burden on health systems.

By 2030, there is predicted to be a 10 million shortage of healthcare personnel. There is a greater need than ever to address this staffing shortfall.

Teleoperations, such as the one that Rocci Club provides, are expected to provide the answer to this issue. RoClub's digital innovation can guarantee business continuity for healthcare organisations at any place, at any time, for any examination, as well as enhance access to treatment and the efficiency with which medical technology operates.

RoClub is taking advantage of the €50 billion market potential by becoming a first mover in the digitalized medical technology space and using a fully web-based, multi-modal, multi-vendor strategy.

André Glardon, Co-Founder & Managing Director of roclub, said: “We are pioneering a platform that has the potential to disrupt the operation of medtech. Our vision: Better access to care for patients, more flexibility and business opportunities for medical technical staff and business continuity for healthcare providers worldwide. We are thrilled by the support of leading early-stage investors like Speedinvest and FJ Labs who not only believe in our vision but support us with their strong investment platform to grow and scale our business.”
