HealthTech startup Cera has topped up its Seed funding round with an additional £1.4m.

The news comes after the London-based firm announced a £1.3m Seed in November last year.

This new round of funding was led by existing investor Credo Ventures and drew support from several new backers including Paris-based Kima Ventures.

Co-founded by Ben Maruthappu and Marek Sacha, Cera seeks to connect patients with prospective carers “within hours”.

Maruthappu commented on the news: “We are delighted to bring on additional investors with health, tech and financial expertise, to boost our development and growth as we reboot social care.

“In the past three months alone, we have signed partnerships with several NHS Trusts, Uber, insurers, food-tech companies and many others, scaling rapidly while delivering the highest standards of care,” he added.

The startup claims to have signed contracts with 10 NHS organisations and says it will use the latest funding to develop additional partnerships and trial AI.

Andrej Kiska, partner at Credo Ventures, said: “Credo is backing Cera because we believe they have a huge opportunity to improve and advance the way that care is delivered across Europe.

“Ben and Marek have extremely impressive individual backgrounds in healthcare and technology respectively, and their teamwork is reflected in the progress that has been made in just six short months since the launch. We are proud to be a part of their journey and are confident that Cera will continue to scale incredibly quickly,” concluded the investor.
