Paris-based Charles.co, the first digital clinic entirely dedicated to men’s health issues, has just secured €7 million in a seed-stage funding round. The investment was led by Kurma Partners and Speedinvest (which invested in Flowdesk and Stotles).
Eyes to grow its team
The investment will be used to expand Charles.co’s service offering and build out its team, which has already supported 50,000 men in combating chronic conditions such as erectile dysfunction or insomnia. It will allow Charles.co to expand its team and its areas of intervention.
“Rapid treatment often means better care, but unfortunately many men feel uncomfortable going for consultations for chronic conditions. The goal of Charles.co is to reconnect men with their health and to offer them a safe, easily accessible space where they can get information, consult remotely and receive complete support for their medical issues,” said Charles.co co-founder Simon Burellier.
“We are convinced by Charles.co’s mission and approach, especially given the shortage of specialists for men’s health. Charles.co is offering men a new way to access healthcare for some of their most sensitive, allowing them a confidential and effective treatment route,” said Benjamin Belot, Associate Director at Kurma Partners.
“We are impressed with Simon and Olivier’s stellar execution and are thrilled to be backing their digital-first, patient-centric and personalized approach to men’s health,” said Andrea Zitna, Principal at Speedinvest.
Digital clinic for men
Founded in 2019 by Simon Burellier and Olivier Algoud, Charles.co is a digital clinic that addresses chronic health issues in men, such as sexual health, hair loss, or insomnia. Developed in partnership with doctor, the platform supports men throughout their care journey, spanning teleconsultation, personalised treatment plans, and follow-ups via phone and messaging.
Already, the platform has directly served 50,000 men and built a community of over 700,000 subscribers who follow its medical content and videos on its blog, Youtube, TikTok and Instagram. The team aims to make Charles.co the go-to brand for men’s health across Europe, with more than six million men already reviewing the platform’s medical information each month.
It provides men with complete care paths for chronic or intimate health conditions, offering teleconsultations with specialists, personalised treatment plans, and follow-ups. Charles.co offers all of its services via an integrated digital platform developed in close collaboration with prominent medical experts on men’s health. Charles.co provides a dedicated and confidential space for men to address health problems that are often hidden, trivialised, and under-treated in conventional health systems.
