VetCloud raises €25k+ seed, aims to disrupt veterinary softwareBY Vukašin Stojkov ON December 11
Serbian startup VetCloud, which is building “the first modern software solution for the veterinary industry” has just recieved its first seed round, the investment totaling north of 25.000€.
Bulgarian seed fund and accelerator Eleven took VetCloud in their latest startups batch with a 25.000€ for 8% of the company. The other investor has not been named, the details of that deal are not public either, while emphasis has been given to the fact that the CA-based angel has a strong background in the US veterinary industry which the startup is ultimately targeting.
Making veterinarians’ job easier while increasing their profits
Accerding to VetCloud’s founder and CEO Ivan Vesić, the existing software solutions for veterinarians are obsolete i almost every way imaginable, from user experience, to customer support, features, (nonexistent) mobile apps, desktop-based and hard to use (or look at) UI.
VetCloud plans to offer a superior product in all areas — features, UX, UI, support, cloud-based system, platform independence, while at the same time competing aggressively on pricing. The ambition is to disrupt and dominate the veterinary software market.
The veterinary industry in the US alone has a combined revenue of 27 billion dollars, which might illustrate the potential of both the market and the product.
The priority for the startup at this moment is finishing the MVP and launching an open beta, after which an entry into the US market would be the next step.
