To further support the growth course of the innovative healthcare platform HeldYn, a first financing round has been successfully completed with investors from the DACH region. As part of this, another strong team of investors was brought on board: namely, AS2K GmbH, the investment company of entrepreneur, investor and consultant Sebastian Kurz and C-Quadrat founder Alexander Schütz.
HeldYn enables healthcare professionals to freelance and decide for themselves when and how much they want to perform – at a significantly higher hourly wage. HeldYn is launching its service in Vienna and the surrounding area and offers people in need of care the opportunity to receive individual care both at home and outside. With over 12 years of management experience in the healthcare sector, the founders, who are themselves qualified healthcare and nursing professionals, are aware of the great potential of a flexible, reliable intermediation of professional care and therapy services in Austria. "Working conditions and performance quality in nursing are continuously deteriorating. It was clear to us, something has to change now," says co-founder Sabine Niedermüller.
HeldYn offers intermediation of care and therapy at home of the highest professional quality while giving the options that people have long taken for granted when looking for a doctor: namely, to choose their own care in a self-customized manner. “Because with the right highly qualified care at home, a relocation to a care facility can be avoided," says co-founder Simone Mérey.
HeldYn CARE GmbH was supported in all legal matters by CERHA HEMPEL under the lead of Thomas Trettnak (Partner, Corporate M&A), Bogdan Capra and Fabian Kraft (both Associates, Corporate M&A) as well as Armin Schwabl (Partner, Regulatory), Navid Dersch (Associate, Regulatory) and Alina Alavi Kia (Senior Associate, IP).
