roclub raises €4M for remotely operated diagnostics

roclub has raised €4M for software that allows diagnostic imaging to be operated remotely. Speedinvest led the round with participation from FJ Labs, Better Ventures and strategic angels.

The funding follows a recently announced pre-seed funding of over €2.5 million. With the fresh capital, the medtech will expand its operations from DACH to the rest of Europe and the US, further develop its remote healthcare service marketplace and grow its international team.

The medical sector is experiencing a significant shortage of healthcare personnel as our population ages rapidly; roclub’s proposal to solve this is teleoperation, wherein medical devices can be operated from anywhere in the world. Its ideal is to allow physicians to work more flexibly and ensure that examinations are no longer canceled due to a lack of medical-technical professionals.

Its Advisory Board includes radiologists and radiographers from across the globe.

Speedinvest partner Andrea Zitna commented: "André and Matthias are serial health entrepreneurs with deep experience in the medtech and specifically diagnostics imaging space. They intimately understand the pain-points in the industry and their roclub solution is a testament to that. Not only can it dramatically improve access for patients, it represents a clear and compelling business case for providers. We are excited to support them in their vision and respond to an amazing demand from providers globally."

Jeff Weinstein, a partner at FJ Labs, said "As specialists in network effects-driven investments, we see immense potential in roclub’s vision of a marketplace for remote healthcare service. We love the concept of fusing a secure, compliant connectivity solution for medical devices of all kinds with a marketplace layer and are eager to contribute our expertise to this endeavour."
