Vetwork, an Egyptian startup that offers pet care at home, is launching its services in Saudi Arabia. The 500 Startups & The Cairo Angels Portfolio company, is building on its success in Egypt by expanding into the GCC starting with KSA. The recent move comes after its acceptance into the TQDM Program provided by KAUST, the program has helped the founding team adapt their product to the KSA market and launch in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam.
Since launching its Petcare at Home Service in KSA, Vetwork has launched a partnership with Matjar Panda, one of the largest retailers in the Kingdom’s Pet Market. The partnership is the start of something bigger to come with aggressive growth being the ultimate goal.
“We have been planning to launch in KSA for a year now, the main issue was onboarding vets and getting them to believe in Vetwork. Once that was done, we launched a new version of the website adapted to the Saudi market,” says Fady Azzouny, Vetwork CEO.
Vetwork is planning on adding several other services to its current healthcare model in KSA, with grooming, training and boarding in the pipeline and expected to launch by mid-September.
