Dhaka-based Healthtech startup Frontliners Technologies has announced that it has raised its first round of angel investing with prolific angel investor M Asif Rahman, founder of WPDeveloper and ARCom, and Nazmul Hasan Rupok, CEO of WPDeveloper. 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 the ambition to be the super app for doctors providing information and digital services for physicians.
Salman Rahman, Founder and CEO of Frontliners said: âIn a country like Bangladesh, we have seen throughout the pandemic that the support and resources for healthcare professionals are not enough. Unlike metropolitan areas, most areas of our country do not have appropriate digital services for healthcare professionals. Our physicians are more than capable of solving many of the challenges we face if they have access to resources and support. So we thought, âWhat if we can connect physicians with each other so that they can share their expertise and resources? “
âFrontliners will enable connected healthcare professionals to share their expertise with their peers using the Frontliners platform,â says Md. Shafiqul Islam Khan, COO of Frontliners. We are building a UNIQUE SOLUTION for doctors where they will find all kinds of professionals and academic solutions for everyday life.
Bashar Bhuiyan, Co-Founder and CTO of Frontliners said, âOur long-term goal is to introduce AI-based solutions for physicians and patients, which will move the healthcare industry from our country to the next level.
Mr. Asif Rahman said, âWe have seen great new approaches in consumer health technologies, from telemedicine to planning. There is a gap in the way doctors connect and collaborate, especially Covid has shown us the gap. Frontliners is an ambitious project led by a really energetic team, we believe they have the potential to be a go-to solution for healthcare professionals and work as a great app to help grow from knowledge. âMr. Rahmand is a successful tech entrepreneur and prolific angel investor.
Nazmul Hasan Rupok, the company’s other investor, said: âTo help develop our healthcare industry, it is important that our doctors have access to the latest industry knowledge, where Frontliners could play a vital role. ”
