Johannes Schildt is the CEO and co-founder of KRY – a pioneering digital healthcare service that allows people in need to see a medical doctor via on-demand video consultations.
KRY launched its app in France and the UK (under brand name LIVI) in 2018 after securing $66m (€53m) in Series B funding. Earlier this year, Juliet Bauer, the former chief digital officer for NHS England, joined the startup as VP of product.
In August 2019, LIVI announced that it had signed landmark new deals with the UK’s NHS meaning that their telemedicine app would now be available for more than 1.85 million UK patients to book video consultations and access referrals and prescriptions without leaving their homes.
LIVI’s partnership with the NHS gives patients access to UK-trained GPs via an app, extending access to primary care services during core hours as well as out of hours and weekends.
When patients book an appointment with LIVI, they will speak to an NHS GP, just as they would if they were attending an appointment in the surgery, skirting the long, unpleasant waiting room experience.
Schildt is a true serial entrepreneur who has founded or co-founded more than 3 companies and started his first company while still in school.
He holds a Masters of Science in business and economics from The University of Stockholm.
