An independent online medical booking platform in South Africa called LocumBase has received an undisclosed financing round from Grindstone Ventures as the company prepares for exponential growth.
LocumBase was launched in 2016 by Zulé Vuuren to connect independent medical practitioners with South African practices and to streamline the locum-finding process.
If you want to deliver the absolute best treatment to your patients as a primary practitioner or practice owner, you need to ensure that you get enough sleep and rest. Vuuren says, “you need an easy and streamlined way to manage your temporary staff and identify the best new locums so that you may develop your business.”
The tech stack that LocumBase uses has a wide range of potential applications. We are prepared to scale our operations over South Africa and look forward to expanding internationally by the end of 2023.
According to Vuuren, “We see more and more demand from unknown industries where our core software may have a good influence on labour efficiency and job possibilities, from day one deployment.”
According to Catherine Young, managing partner of Grindstone Ventures, providing equal investment opportunities to companies that women created is an essential component of the company’s mission.
As a graduate of the Grindstone Accelerator, LocumBase had grown by leaps and bounds since 2021, when it was named the overall winner of its cohort.” We are excited to have the chance to invest in a business that is changing the way medical practices have always found locums,” she said.
