Zesty bags additional $2M in seed funding to expand healthcare appointment platform beyond London

Healthcare appointment booking platform Zesty has closed another $2 million in seed funding in addition to an undisclosed amount it had raised in the round in January 2013. TA Ventures and ABRT Fund provided the new funding, according to TechCrunch.

Co-founder Lloyd Price explained: "What this funding round will enable us to do is to build - effectively - a search engine. When you go to Zesty now you can type in a postcode, you can search by treatment type. But what we want to do in the next version of the site is we want to do it by speciality and also by filters, so you can say I'm looking for a German-speaking pediatrician to see my daughter. Our vision is very much this kind of Expedia, TripAdvisor model, where you can just filter and filter."

Zesty is also eyeing an expansion beyond London to cater to the whole of the UK. To do that, the startup will have to launch a Series A round around Christmas, the report added.

Launched in May 2013, Zesty lets its users search for and book free appointments in nearby areas in London. The service also sends confirmations and reminders to the patient via email and SMS, TechCrunch reported.
