Currently, it is estimated that 32% of women in France feel anxious about managing their health (compared to 20% of men). Women not only need to have access to comprehensive healthcare, but they are also entitled to demand that their specific physical and physiological needs be taken into account. 

Addressing this public health challenge, a French female health startup Sorella offers a network of multidisciplinary health centres dedicated to women. 

New clinics in France 

Now, Sorella has closed €5 million in funding led by blisce/, a certified B Corp impact investment firm from France alongside Vorwerk Ventures, a Berlin-based, independent VC firm that recently backed DUDE CHEM and Resourcify.

Sorella will use the fresh funding to further strengthen its coordinated care offering, enhance its digital platform and expand its network of multidisciplinary health clinics for women to significantly accelerate its development in France. In addition, the company will open 3 new clinics in 2024 to reach a dozen across France by 2026.

Dedicated health spaces for women

Founded in 2022 by Clémence Lejeune, Jeanne Theuret, and Youssef Benhaddou, Sorella provides a hybrid healthcare offering with a network of multidisciplinary health clinics. It gives every woman, irrespective of age, access to a comprehensive care pathway from professionals. It specialises in a range of concerns from puberty to post-menopause.

The hybrid care system integrates the performance of new technological solutions to simplify the workflow for healthcare professionals and improve the healthcare pathway. The digital solutions also facilitate information sharing to patients, prevention and health screenings that are key to improving women’s health. As per the company, up to 10,000 patients can be welcomed each year in a Sorella clinic.

Its care offering includes gynaecology, cardiology, general medicine, physiotherapy, psychology, and dietetics. 

Benefits care professionals

Sorella’s digital platform ensures a smoother patient management system, better internal guidance, and post-consultation follow-up. Besides patients, the company also empowers healthcare professionals unleash their maximum efficiency and full dedication to the patient as they are completely relieved of the administrative constraints. 

“This fundraising round opens a new chapter that will accelerate the development of Sorella in France – and beyond, our capacity for innovation in healthcare pathways and prevention. It is a strong mark of confidence in our model and proof that our fight for the improvement of women’s health is very relevant today. The healthcare professionals who support us are also convinced of this,” emphasised Clémence Lejeune, co-founder of Sorella. 

“Today, 60% of women are dropping out from their healthcare journey in France. This is a major public health challenge. We are convinced that the pluridisciplinary approach and the hybrid model that allies physical and digital will enable Sorella to reinvent women’s health with a significant and wide impact. We are excited to support the co-founders and their team in the construction of tomorrow’s way of practicing medicine,” stated Alexandre Mars, Founder and CEO of blisce/.

“As long-time advocates in the female healthcare space we couldn’t be more excited to back the outstanding Sorella team and their mission to build the next generation of female healthcare”, said Katharina Neuhaus, Principal at Vorwerk Ventures. “With its hybrid model, Sorella paves the way for a more holistic and transformative healthcare paradigm for women, recognising the interconnectedness of physical, mental, and emotional well-being”.
