Since we launched Figure 1 a little over a year ago, we’ve reached a number of exciting milestones. Figure 1’s images have been viewed over 100 million times and more than 125,000 healthcare professionals have joined the community.
Today we’re excited to share another milestone–we have just closed a “Series A” financing round led by Union Square Ventures, an early investor in Twitter, Tumblr, and Kickstarter. We’re thrilled to join the USV family.
We share USV’s long-term and product-focused view of the world, and are working hard to make Figure 1 indispensable for healthcare professionals. These additional resources will help us achieve this goal. Over the coming months, we’ll add a number of compelling features– some that our users have specifically asked for, and others that we’ve designed with them in mind. We also plan to use these resources to reach many more healthcare professionals around the world, which will in turn make Figure 1 more useful for every individual user.
We look forward to growing the Figure 1 community, and we’re excited to work with Union Square Ventures to do so.
To connect with healthcare professionals around the world who are viewing, discussing, and sharing medical cases, join Figure 1.
