Dropmed is a tech startup and Sweden's first independent medical marketplace. The healthcare sector is years behind in terms of digital development and we want to help make the sector modern and efficient! Our investors range from Christer Fuglesang (Yes, the Rocketman) and Mathias Weinhandl (Yes, the NHL-pro) to Propel Capital, Interactive Solutions, and Curus.
We have over the past year and a half built the most advanced marketplace platform for medical equipment in Scandinavia and the largest product range with over 60 000 products online. On Dropmed, healthcare professionals can easily manage their purchases from registered medical device vendors in a one-stop-shop. Apart from saving time and money, caregivers can collaborate with vendors, effectively building their own purchasing system with discounts and agreements tailored to their clinics.
Dropmed is the place where most hospitals and healthcare centres will buy their equipment in a year from now. Picture a new Amazon, but specifically for medical equipment, and with a positive societal impact - thats us! Over the next few years we are taking the platform to several new markets within Europe, and then globally.
Dropmed was founded by engineers & product developers with different backgrounds. We have a strong passion for business, growth, product development, and making the health care sector better! Our common belief is that a developmental mindset can be applied to anything, and that collaboration and using our individual skills is what is going to make it happen.
Our 2 year roadmap
Today we are an internal team of four + a couple of external developers. In October we will take in more investments and grow the team with 2-3 people and in a couple more months we have been through another larger round of investment and will scale through the spring to 20 people in the summer of 2023. The year after we are planning on scaling to five new markets and a staff of 60+. Its VERY exciting times ahead!
