In a $1M Seed Funding Round, Marham.pk Hopes to Become a Giant

One of the leading Pakistani health-tech startups has raised $1 million in seed funding to expand. Former LinkedIn executive Aatif Awan led the round and is the founder of Indus Valley Capital. Weihan Liew, a leading Southeast Asian angel investor, also participated in the round.

Health Sector’s History in Pakistan & Leading Role of Marham

Every year, millions of Pakistanis die because of quack medicine and lack of access to surgeons and technology. An estimated $3 billion is spent annually on private healthcare. Finding a qualified and experienced healthcare professional can be a difficult and frustrating process.

Marham Jumps in

It was the first to offer a mobile application, a website, and a telephone assistance service to help patients schedule appointments with physicians. With its telemedicine platform, the company became the leading online video consultation provider within a few years.

Marham’s network helps more than ten million patients in Pakistan, with more than 10,000 doctors registered in 67 cities. Choosing the right doctors on Marham.pk has helped thousands of customers.

Our vision is to build a healthcare ecosystem for patients, doctors and hospitals to ensure faster care and better experience via technology, processes, and telemedicine-enabled micro-clinics across Pakistan. I believe we are all set to do this because of the 1st mover advantage, well-equipped team and the ability to sustain through bootstrapping.”, said Ehsan Imam – CEO & Co-Founder

Marham streamlines physician practices by digitizing patient records, appointments and creating awareness. The interactive rating system helps doctors become more proficient at providing better patient care.

Pakistan’s Marham is going to be a game-changer. According to Marham’s CEO and founder, Asma Omer, “the project will save millions of lives and provide quality healthcare for generations to come.”

Having partnered with leading pharmacies and labs in Pakistan, Marham recently launched online booking services for medicines and lab tests to meet the current needs. Marham has consequently become a leading medical app in Pakistan.

Aatif Awan, the Indus Valley Capital Managing Partner, said: “We are excited to partner with Marham on their journey to provide affordable, quality healthcare to everyone in Pakistan. The founders’ passion is inspiring, and the progress they’ve already made while bootstrapping is impressive. We look forward to working with them to accelerate Marham’s growth.”

The company plans to expand into smaller towns and rural areas as funding becomes available. With 80 current employees, Marham is actively hiring new staff. Marham’s teamwork and excellence make us one of the most prestigious startups in the country.

Liew believes telemedicine can revolutionize healthcare services in developing countries. He describes the founders’ vision and tenacity as venture capital investors in emerging markets as “impressive,” He feels privileged to be a part of their journey to change healthcare in Pakistan.

“We are immensely grateful to all the advisors and team members. It’s beautiful to grow together with such a loyal and diverse team. We are all in to build a better healthcare future for Pakistan.,” stated Ehsan Imam.
