Today we learned that the Polish online medical scheduling service Docplanner with a strong Central and Eastern European presence raised $1 million from Point Nine Capital, Polish RTA Ventures, London-based Piton Capital and private investors. The funding will be spent to boost international expansion efforts.
Its Western analog ZocDoc raised a hefty $50 million from DST Global, and might have spare cash for an Eastern European acquisition spree.
Docplanner sees 2,5 million visits each month and is apparently approaching a break-even although it is hard to imagine, considering that aggressive growth is always costly. The startup was launched in 2010 by Mariusz Gralewski, CEO and founder of GoldenLine.pl and an investor in two other ventures backed by Point Nine Capital, namely Brainly and Positionly.
Now the company is most popular in Poland where nearly 70 percent of the Internet traffic comes from, Czech Republic and Slovakia but it is said to gain traction in Russia and has presence in Germany.
Looks like in Germany the service is not an option yet, as the service is in the process of collecting data from doctors (I did find my two main doctors listed, so it looks thorough).
