Helium Health, founded in 2016 by Adegoke Olubisi, Dimeji Sofowora, and Tito Ovia, has transformed the healthcare landscape by digitizing medical records, offering payment and financing solutions for clinics, and incorporating a telemedicine feature. Before Helium Health’s inception, manual record-keeping led to data gaps, longer waiting times, and potential errors. In 2020, Helium Health secured $10 million in Series A funding, paving the way for expansion across African countries. Now, with a recent Series B funding round of $30 million in June 2023, Helium Health’s fintech product, HeliumCredit, is set to reach new heights. In total, Helium Health has raised an impressive $42.12 million.
Goke Olubisi, CEO of Helium Health, is a visionary leader driving Africa’s healthcare technology advancements. With prior success in building popular social platforms and productivity suites, Goke’s mission is to establish a data-driven healthcare sector in Africa. Passionate about eliminating barriers and complexities, he envisions a future where quality healthcare is easily accessible. Goke states, “We’re bold in our ambitions because we understand that audacity brings about significant change.”
Tito Ovia, co-founder and Head of Public Sector Growth at Helium Health, pursued her passion for delivering healthcare services across Africa after leaving her role at the Lagos State AIDS Control Agency. Meeting Goke and Dimeji solidified their shared drive and interest, leading to the establishment of Helium Health. Tito’s remarkable contributions have earned her recognition as a Forbes 30 under 30 recipient and a winner of the Future Africa Award for Disruption in African healthcare through Helium Health.
Dimeji Sofowora, another co-founder of Helium Health, plays a vital role in driving the company’s success.
