Doctolib Raises $170M For Online Appointments, Hits $1.13B Valuation

French doctor booking app Doctolib has raised a US$170.4 million (€150 million) Series E that propels it to unicorn status.

The round, led by New York-based General Atlantic  alongside Accel  and others, takes Doctolib’s total funding  to $266.5 million, according to its Crunchbase profile. It marks one of the largest e-health financings to date in a field that’s increasingly attracting investors. The round also values the startup at $1.13 billion, according to TechCrunch, and comes less than 16 months after its $42 million Series D in 2017.

Founded in 2013, Paris-based Doctolib was initially focused on scheduling for health providers, giving patients an easier way to book appointments. In January, the company branched out into telemedicine, an area our Savannah Dowling covered recently.

Per TechCrunch, Doctolib has 75,000 practitioners and 1,400 healthcare facilities using its platform.
