Jakarta-based health tech start-up, Gorry Holdings, has successfully raised funding from Singapore’s private equity firm, Heritas Capital Management, for an undisclosed amount. The funding will be utilized to create new services and speed up expansion across Indonesia.
The start-up has invested in analytics, big data capabilities and machine learning to support its two platforms: GorryWell and Gorry Gourmet. GorryWell offers a one-stop digital wellness platform, taking in users’ health biometrics and offering recommendations which include food journal, calorie intake, deficit tracker, activity tracker and daily activity challenge. Gorry Gourmet offers nutritionist-approved food subscription. The meals are catered to individual’s needs ranging from weight loss, muscle gain, pregnancy and special needs.
The company is also working closely with the government, becoming an official partner of the Indonesia’s Ministry of Health (MOH)’s National Health Campaign Initiative. It is also developing “HealthyChoice” label for restaurants that meet the requirements, based on ingredients and macronutrient data.
Indonesia’s health tech is set to be the next unicorn farm with big potential. Currently, the key players are Halodoc, Alodokter and PesanLab. The Indonesian government is also supporting the movement by allocating 5% of the state budget to facilitate tech-based health services.
