Glasgow-based firm Continulus, a global online medical education platform, has secured £500K equity investment from a UK based group of investors. The latest funding will be used for the firm’s technological expansion, reinforcement of its management team, and expansion of its global footprint as it aims to collaborate with some of the world’s highly respected medical organisations.
Dr Eoghan Colgan, the company’s founder and chief executive, said: “With existing users in 89 countries and growing, our long-term aim is to become one of the leading global healthcare education providers and to form a worldwide network that can be used to address global healthcare challenges. This investment represents a major step forward in fulfilling our ambitions.”
“Both the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change are important factors in our growth since Continulus gives all our users online access to conferences, lectures and events at which, previously, professionals would have had to be physically present.”
Graham McDonald, former Head of Global Private Equity at Aberdeen Standard Investments who led the investment consortium, said: “It is exciting to be shortening the knowledge translation gap from high-impact evidence-based research to frontline practise by bringing together the leading researchers and subject experts onto one platform, with Continulus facilitating this global network.”
