Growceanu, a group of business angels, is investing 180,000 euros in the startup Ulpia, an educational marketplace dedicated to the medical community. The funds obtained will be used by Ulpia for product development, marketing and sales.
Ulpia is an interactive platform for both dentists and the medical community stakeholders, such as drug manufacturers, equipment distributors and organizers of medical events. The platform aims to create the optimal context for readers to support their presentations and for sellers to provide the tools the medical community can benefit from. In 2022, Ulpia is targeting to expand in the Western Europe and North America.
The startup was founded in 2020 by Dr. Cătălin Balog Bellu, who has over 17 years of experience in dentistry and entrepreneurship. He established the Dental Care Dental Care Clinic, the Noa Aesthetics Clinic and the Noa Research Training Center, and initiated several programs for dentists and dental technicians, including the Dental Medicine Marketing Conferences, the DentalEventsCalendar.com platform, The New Age Dentist and ConectDentistry.
The startup is present in 11 countries and has had revenues of over 200,000 euros in the last 12 months, with a pre-money valuation of 2 million euros. Ulpia received the special award Investment from Growceanu, Cleverage and Matei Dumitrescu, during the Demo Day event at Commons Accel that took place on the 14th of December 2021
