Established in 2015 by Dr. Kemi Kuti, Nigerian start up Kangpe developed a platform that gives users the chance to discuss with qualified medical doctors online. It aims to help those without the means to pay medical consultations or too far from health centers benefit from the expertise of more than 500 doctors 24/7.
The App which is available on Android also lets women keep track of their menstrual cycle thus letting them determine their period of fertility by sending them notifications.
The start-up won the Seedstars competition for Nigeria and will therefore represent the nation at the grand finale which is to take place in 2017, in Switzerland.
