Vezeeta moves headquarters from Cairo to Dubai
STARTUP WATCH- Vezeeta moves headquarters from Cairo to Dubai: Vezeeta, an app that helps connect patients with physicians, moved its headquarters from Cairo to Dubai late last year, a company spokesperson confirmed to Menabytes. The decision to be based out of Dubai was reportedly made to help Vezeeta attract global talent, but the company appears to have no immediate plans to launch its services in the UAE. It has also reportedly opened an office in California in a bid to sell its software to US hospitals and clinics.
Expansion into Nigeria and Kenya is a possibility; new products are in the pipeline: The company could be launching in both countries within the coming three months, Menabytes quotes unnamed sources as saying. It has hired business operations professional Nana Frimpong as Vice President for Africa, presumably to lead its Africa expansion. Last month, we reported that founder Amir Barsoum had announced plans for the company to enter Africa and south-east Asia for the first time in early February. Vezeeta is also reportedly developing and testing a new medicine delivery service called ePharmacy.
