Dubai-based health insurance and HR service Bayzat is taking on $3.6m in a Series A round of funding led by BECO Capital. Precinct Partners also contributed to the round alongside angel investors.
The company initially launched in 2013 as a service through which users could buy financial products before focusing on health insurance in an effort to meet demand and fulfil the gap in the region’s market.
It operates a B2C platform for users to compare prices and purchase health insurance as well as a B2B software-as-a-service offering aimed at providing enterprises with broader HR automation tools.
The company is monetised by charging insurers a commission and counts Deliveroo, Baker & Spice and Propertyfinder among its business clients.
Bayzat currently employs 40 staff and claims a monthly growth rate of more than 30% with more than 4,000 business users on the platform.
