Paris-based digital health insurance platform Alan has just secured €40 million in a financing round led by eminent investors including Index Ventures and partners of DST Global. The series B has been conducted just after 10 months of series A round in which the startup raised $28 million. Now after the fresh capital inflow, Alan has managed to bring its total funding to €75 million.

Tom Stafford, Managing Partner of DST Global​ stated, “We are excited to continue our partnership with Jean-Charles, Charles and the rest of the  Alan team as they redesign health insurance and healthcare more generally. Legacy solutions lead many employers to provide limited and inefficient health insurance for their employees. Through Alan, companies can sign-up quickly and easily and offer best-in-class healthcare for their employees at a competitive price and in a digital format.”

Health insurance – 100% online with 0% paper use

Founded in 2016, Alan offers hassle-free digital health insurance solutions to users. The year 2018 remained to be very significant for the startup as it achieved more than 500% revenue growth from €3.5 million to €22 million and user base of 27,000 from less than 5,000. With a team of 64 members, Alan caters 2,000+ companies including My Little Paris, Le Slip Français, Ledger and Converteo.

Focus on SMEs and freelancers

Alan is going to utilise the latest fund in further developing its platform to offer enhanced user experience. The startup will also prioritise the SMEs sector and freelancer customers. Further, Alan will absorb more than 100 people in its team to escalate its growth in France by the end of 2019.

Alan co-founder and CEO Jean-Charles articulated, “At Alan, we want to create a dramatic move to a more transparent, caring, and delightful health experience. Moving fast – it has been only 10 months since our last fundraising – with the support of top-tier investors is a confirmation of our vision to build intuitively obvious healthcare for the community. We are human-focused and care-driven. We aim at building a different kind of company based on transparency, trust, and care both for our users and our team.”
