Business Development Intern (m/f/d)- Chinese Market // Medigo

January 7, 2019

Founded in 2014, MEDIGO is a quickly accelerating HealthTech and InsurTech startup, headquartered in the center of Berlin.

Our company is to date the most successful medical tourism startup worldwide, and simplifies the complex process of booking medical travel while being backed by investors such as Accel Partners (investors of successful startups such as Facebook and Dropbox). Over the past four years, we have helped over 150,000 patients organize their international medical treatments with the leading medical centers in the US, Europe, and Asia.

In addition we’re continuing to grow our core services; we have now launched a unique insurance product of our own, which provides treatment for serious illnesses on a global scale. Our insurance activities are rapidly expanding as a consequence of this exciting evolution and we are building for growth.
