In just four years, Figure 1 has become the default global platform for millions of healthcare professionals to connect with each other around patient cases. With more than two-thirds of U.S. medical students on the platform, Figure 1 represents the future of medicine — and today’s announcement will fund that future.
The round was led by Kensington Capital Partners, one of Canada’s leading private investment firms with more than US$1B under management. In addition to Samsung and insurance conglomerate John Hancock/Manulife, it included Hedgewood and WTI, an early investor in Facebook and Google. Existing investors Union Square Ventures, Rho Canada Ventures, and Version One Ventures also participated.
“Every morning we wake up with the goal of democratizing medical knowledge in order to help save lives,” said Gregory Levey, Figure 1’s CEO. “We are thrilled to be partnering with investors who understand why we come to work. Using these resources, the coming years will see Figure 1 integrate new technologies in order to completely transform itself — bolstering the already astounding capabilities of the network. We are just getting started.”
