Company Summary

Up-Health is an "Etsy for health-professionals". We allow professionals to provide their service online, and we also allow users to search them by health concern. While half the healthcare market is made of small enterprises, nobody is helping them market their service online. We project the potential market to be $45billion, and we think that we can become the go-to platform if we enter now.
