Sweden’s KRY, an app for connecting patients with doctors for video consultations, has raised a seed round of €6.1 million led by Index Ventures and CreandumProject A also participated.

KRY is currently available in Sweden and plans to launch in more markets in Europe with the aid of this seed round.

The digital health startup said it has seen 30,000 people in Sweden use its platform since launching last year to connect with KRY-employed healthcare professionals. The medical professionals available on the platform are employed by KRY, often working part-time for the startup and part-time with a traditional medical centre.

Video consultations last 15 minutes and cost 299 Krona (€30). Traditional consultations can vary in cost with local councils, setting costs at around 200-250 Krona (€20-€26), according to KRY.

“This first round will make it possible for us to provide our service to more people all over the world, helping them get the care and medical treatment they need,” said Johannes Schildt, CEO and Co-founder. “In addition to giving patients flexible and on-demand healthcare, KRY is helping to alleviate the pressure that growing populations have on traditional medical support models.”

As part of the investment round, Fredrik Cassel of Creandum, Ben Holmes on Index Ventures, and Thies Sander of Project A will be joining the board at KRY.
