Dhaka-based Healthtech startup Frontliners Technologies announced that it has raised its first round of angel investment from prolific angel investor M Asif Rahman, founder of WPDeveloper and ARCom, and Nazmul Hasan Rupok, CEO of WPDeveloper. The details of the investment were not disclosed.
Founded in 2020 by Salman Rahman, Bashar Bhuiyan, and Md. Shafiqul Islam Khan, Frontliners is developing a peer-to-peer networking app for Doctors in Bangladesh with an ambition to be the super app for doctors providing information and digital services to doctors.
Salman Rahman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Frontliners said, “In a country like Bangladesh, we’ve seen throughout the pandemic that the support and resources for medical professionals are not sufficient. Unlike the metropolitan areas, most of the regions in our country do not have proper digital services for healthcare professionals. Our doctors are more than capable of solving many of the challenges we face if they get access to resources and support. So we thought, "what would happen if we could connect doctors with each other so that they could share expertise and resources?"
"Frontliners will allow connected healthcare professionals to share expertise with their peers using the Frontliners platform,” explains Md. Shafiqul Islam Khan, Chief Operating Officer of Frontliners. We are building a ONE STOP SOLUTION for the doctors where they will find all kinds of professional and academic solutions for daily life.”
Bashar Bhuiyan, Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Frontliners said "Our long term goal is to introduce AI-enabled solutions for both doctors and patients which will take the health sector of our country to the next level.”
M Asif Rahman said “We have seen excellent new approaches in consumer-facing healthtech, from telemedicine to scheduling. There is a gap in how doctors connect with each other and collaborate, especially Covid has shown us the gap. Frontliners is an ambitious project by a truly energetic team, we believe they have the potential to be a go-to solution for health professionals and work as a Super App to help grow from knowledge-front.“ Mr. Rahmand is a successful tech entrepreneur and prolific angel investor.
Nazmul Hasan Rupok, the other investor in the company, mentioned, “To help grow our health sector it is important that our doctors have access to the latest knowledge in the sector, where Frontliners could play a vital role. ”
