Zuckerberg Invests in Beep Saude Alongside Banco Bradesco

Nov 10, 2022

Reading Time: 3 minutes CZI, a fund of Mark Zuckerberg, founder of the Meta Group, and his wife Priscila Chan, was the investment vehicle used for the deal Mark Zuckerberg invests in Beep Saude , a Brazilian health tech, in a Series C round co-led by Banco Bradesco’s investment fund. Original investors Valor Capital , David Velez, CEO of Nubank , and DNA Capital also participated in the round. It is the company’s second contribution in just over a year. In April 2021 the startup received a series B investment in the amount of BRL $110 million led by Valor Capital Group. Although the company claims that Series C was an up round valuation, the startup did not disclose the value of the transaction, which made analysts skeptical as whether in transaction was in fact a down round, specially looking from Mark Zuckerberg’s eyes as he has seen his darling Facebook holdings heading south by almost 73% this year. Together with engineers Iuri Menescal and Rodrigo Ferrer , CEO Vander Corteze , a medical doctor, launched Beep Saúde in 2016 with a home vaccination program, a solution now available in more than 150 cities across the states of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Espírito Santo, Paraná, Pernambuco and the Federal District in Brazil. Beep Saúde was inspired in Amazon’s business model, and operates with the purpose of being 100% e-commerce based. With a lean overhead and high technology logistics deployed, which allows arrival to patients’ homes using an efficient roadmap, the startup bets it will beat the traditional lab competitors. “What Beep can do is offer a better service than that of a premium laboratory, according to our own customers, at the cost of an entry laboratory,’ says Cortese, enthusiastically as Zuckerberg invests in its Beep Saúde. What’s next as Mark Zuckerberg invests in Beep Saúde With the downturn in the venture capital market, the startup had to review its plans. Instead of entering new states, the company chose to maintain the operation in the six current states it services and seek to increase the number of lives by its program.
