Elderly care startup Birdie raises $30m

London-based software platform for elderly care Birdie has picked up $30m in Series B funding as it set its sights on European expansion. 

Birdie was founded in 2017 and provides elderly care agencies with a software platform that helps them to plan visits, and monitor and store key information about patients that are living at home. Through the startup’s app, carers can check in and out of visits, create care plans, get prompted on tasks that need doing and log details about a patient for the next carer. Birdie currently works with more than 700 care providers, up from 500 a year ago.

Belgian growth-stage VC Sofina led the round. Canada’s multi-stage OMERS Ventures also participated. As did transatlantic VC firm Index Ventures, in a follow-on round after it led the startup’s Series A last year.

Birdie has already signed new partners in Spain and is in advanced conversations with partners in Ireland. It is also looking to expand its footprint into France, Germany and the Nordics.

Success is not given, it is earned. Congratulations to the entire team at Birdie on your funding. I wish you the very best in all your endeavours.
