Pulsar Capital acquires controlling stake in UAE’s virtual care provider, TruDoc

TruDoc, UAE’s telehealth and virtual primary care provider, announced an investment by Pulsar Capital, a regional private equity firm specialising in healthcare, ecommerce and FinTech sectors. The investment marks a significant milestone in TruDoc’s mission to redefine healthcare delivery and expand its reach to benefit patients across multiple regions.

Pulsar Capital has invested in TruDoc with the vision to enhance its product offerings and accelerate its growth across South Asia, GCC, and Africa. The news of Pulsar Capital taking a controlling stake in the business comes a year after the initial investment in 2022 which saw the private equity firm own a minority share before recently culminating into a larger investment in the company.

TruDoc strives to bridge the gap in accessibility and affordability, the two biggest challenges facing global healthcare by offering comprehensive end-to-end care for healthy individuals and those dealing with acute and chronic illnesses. At present, TruDoc serves diverse geographies, including UAE, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria and other parts of Africa.

Established in 2011, TruDoc is at the forefront of delivering innovative and accessible healthcare solutions. Its commitment to reimagining healthcare delivery has made the company the provider of 24×7 access to licensed telemedicine close to one million paid subscribers in UAE and 2 million globally, along with its home care doctors, labs and diagnostics, e-pharmacy services, and personalised wellness programs.

TruDoc has redefined the norms of healthcare with its innovative approach that enables patients to proactively manage their health in the convenience of their own home, ultimately creating a more intimate and user-friendly healthcare experience. Managing Partner of Pulsar Capital, Vish Narain also assumes the new role of Executive Chairman of TruDoc. Under its new and upgraded leadership team, TruDoc is poised to transform the future of healthcare delivery with a new focus on product offering, plans of expansion and a continued mission to make healthcare accessible from the comfort of one’s home.
