Czech healthtech Upheal raises $1.05M in a pre-seed round

The Prague-based healthtech startup Upheal has raised $1.05 million in a pre-seed round to develop the platform for mental health professionals. The round was led by KAYA VC.

  • Founded in 2021 by Juraj Chrappa and Martin Horvath, Upheal is an AI-powered note-taking platform for mental health clinicians. The platform helps therapists completely delegate mundane admin tasks to software, so they can fully focus on providing care to patients, and significantly save the time.
  • The main idea of the platform is to help therapists make better decisions in their treatment, and to help clients healing faster. 

“We’re proud to be able to say that the Upheal video session and documentation experience is already much better compared to what therapists know today using legacy telehealth tools and EHR documentation. This is primarily why we describe Upheal as the first smart platform for mental health professionals”, 

Juraj Chrappa, сo-founder and CEO of Upheal, comments.
  • The fresh round was led by Prague-based venture capital fund KAYA that focuses on energy, tech, and real estate fields. Credo Ventures, a company that focuses on early stage investments in IT, Internet, and health, and Calm/Storm Ventures that invests in early-stage digital health and wellbeing startups, also participated in the round.
  • Upheal announced that the investment will be used to accelerate product development.
