Medical revision start-up Pulsenotes scoops £40,000 to kick start launch
No.1 Traveller founder Phil Cameron has invested in new online service which provides video lectures and revision notes for medical undergraduates
Pulsenotes, a new online medical revision service, has secured capital investment of £40,000 from the founder and CEO of airport lounge operator No.1 Traveller; Phil Cameron.
Founded by junior doctors Ben Smeeton, Ben Norton, and Sam Belete, Pulsenotes provides high-quality video lectures, revision notes and applied self-assessments to help medical undergraduates revise.
With an introductory offer of £30 for an annual subscription, the company claims its service equates to the price of a standard medical textbook.
Alongside support and grants from both the Innovation Centre and Student Start Up at the University of Exeter, the funding from Cameron will support Pulsenotes’ launch this week.
Pulsenotes’ Smeeton commented: “[We] have a shared ambition to simplify medical education and know that Pulsenotes will offer a fresh approach to undergraduate learning.
“We’re extremely grateful to have Cameron’s backing and have already benefited hugely from his expertise. We hope this will be the beginning of a long and successful partnership.”
“I struggled to get the funding and advice I needed to start and grow a successful business. It took No1 six years to get any backing from the bank and the support now offered from Exeter and other universities is outstanding.
“It’s inspiring to meet such great young talent. Having experienced first-hand the hurdles young entrepreneurs face, I’m delighted I can support such quality start-ups like Pulsenotes.”
