Partner Lee Bagshaw says:

“Pharmaceutical networks in Southeast Asia have long struggled with fragmentation, but SwipeRx’s platform is innovating how the industry operates via an innovative community-driven commerce model. We’re delighted to have advised the company on their latest financing and look forward to seeing how their innovation continues to transform the delivery of healthcare and pharmaceutical services.”
