Chefaa seeks EGP 5 mn in funding

Pharmacy locator Chefaa is looking to secure EGP 5 mn in funding, says CEO Doaa Aref. One of 10 startups that recently graduated from Flat6Labs’ tenth cycle, the company is hoping to expand its activity and reach 1.6 mn prescriptions per month. Only nine weeks into business, the app has already teamed up with 250 pharmacies, says Aref. The on-demand smart medicine system allows users to scan their prescriptions, locate the nearest pharmacy, order medicine online, and schedule for monthly packages in case of chronic diseases.
