HealthEngine, Australia's biggest online medical directory and booking service, is tapping investors for up to $10 million to help fund its national expansion.
The move comes a year after Seven West Media, the owner of _The West Australian _, and Telstra invested $10.4 million to take a major but undisclosed stake in the e-health business.
HealthEngine chief executive Marcus Tan said yesterday the group was taking advantage of a supportive environment for technology ventures.
He said the fresh funds - HealthEngine is seeking a minimum $5 million - would be used to accelerate growth. The business is sounding out venture capital funds, high net-worth individuals and family offices.
