Bangladesh-based healthtech firm Maya announced it has raised US$2.2 million in a seed round of financing that was jointly led by local private equity firm The Osiris Group and New York-based VC fund Anchorless Bangladesh.
The company provides artificial intelligence-powered digital health services to its users, mainly marginalized women. It uses natural language programming to understand users’ questions and connect them directly to clinical experts ranging from doctors to psychotherapists.
Maya’s services also include features such as digital prescriptions and in-app video calls, among others.
The startup said it plans to use funds from its latest round to further develop its offerings and expand into the Indian, Pakistani, Indonesian, and Middle Eastern markets.
