Founded in 2016, FirstVet is a Swedish startup providing pet owners with on-demand video consultations from qualified veterinarians and other associated services. With a presence in seven markets (Norway, Denmark, Finland, Germany, the UK, the US and its native Sweden), FirstVet has millions of users and has helped even more pets with around 500 veterinarians on the platform.
The company is looking to expand the service globally with other markets. In addition, FirstVet will continue to develop its product and introduce new features to improve the experience for pet owners and vets alike.
The adoption of telemedicine services has sped up during the COVID-19 pandemic. FirstVet, with its strong solution and leading position, has been well-positioned to become the Europe’s leading tele-health platform for the veterinary industry.
In November 2020, FirstVet raised a 35m$ series B financing round led by Mubadala Capital, with the participation from C.Entrepreneurs fund (along with Cathay Innovation), and existing investors OMERS Ventures and Creandum. The investment in FirstVet echoes our BNP Paribas Cardif’ ambition to support the global leader in pet insurance and better serve the pet industry through a holistic suite of pet services.
