FGvW accompanies Series A financing round of mental health startup Sympatient

In a Series A financing round, the mental health startup Sympatient GmbH from Hamburg has raised a total of 7.5 million euros in fresh equity. In addition to the main investor Verve Ventures and existing investors, two new business angels from the healthcare sector participated in the financing round. The new capital is to flow primarily into the expansion of the offering into a so-called "Digital Anxiety Clinic," a comprehensive digital treatment offering for anxiety disorders.

In the Digital Anxiety Clinic, it will be possible to select the right therapy for each individual patient from an extensive range of options. This can take place either digitally, conventionally or hybrid. The aim is to ensure ideal care through tailored therapy offerings while at the same time relieving those providing treatment of standardized therapy elements. In addition to therapy, a digital aftercare program is already being tested in trials.

Sympatient was founded in 2017 by Christian Angern, Julian Angern and Benedikt Reinke. Funded by the Hanseatic City of Hamburg, the startup won the Hamburg Founders Award in September 2019. Sympatient is among the top 3 of the German Startup Award 2021 and won the German Startup Award 2021 as "Newcomer of the Year". The company has 54 employees.

In the execution of the financing round, the company was legally advised by our venture capital team led by Alexander Hartmann.
