Infertility treatment platform Haoyunbang receives undisclosed Series B in millions of USD
Founded in: 2014
Financing status: Tens of millions in RMB (a few million in USD) for Series B financing in 2017
Haoyunbang is an online to offline (O2O) infertility treatment platform that is committed to integrate reproductive resources all over the world to provide professional and reliable solutions for women who have trouble conceiving.
Founded in 2014 in Beijing, it has so far accumulated 3 million users with more than 10,000 reproductive specialists from 30 partner hospitals. It mainly provides four different solutions for its users. Some users can have successful pregnancies through learning the content and information about pregnancy on its platform.
There are also some users who have trouble conceiving and cannot be easily solved with the help of content and information on its platform, so they may need additional medical help to achieve pregnancy. Thus, the company introduces specialists to them based on their problems. For other users, some may have difficult problems conceiving which cannot be solved at local hospitals, so the platform introduces some famous doctors in the top three hospitals for them.
If the first three methods do not work, then these users may need in vitro fertilization, and Haoyunbang also recommends some doctors overseas that users can visit if they would like.
This Series B financing round was led by New Vision Ventures, and the capital will be used to build hospitals to boost its infertility treatment services, and to recruit more specialists to expand its team to provide professional pregnancy advisory services.
