About the Deal

“We chose to invest in UpLyft primarily because we were impressed by their product and the degree of innovation they managed to bring into this field. It is a product that has a visible impact on the quality of life of people and on the improvement of conditions in medical institutions. We are also attentive and active in this niche of home care services since last year, we invested in another startup that innovates the medical field; we will seek to take full advantage of the synergy that the startup creates in the portfolio with the activity that Fortech carries out,”
