Verdane acquires stake in Qbtech / ADHD diagnostic software

31. August 2022

Stock­holm | Hous­ton — Qbtech, the soft­ware provi­der of the objec­tive ADHD tests QbTest and QbCheck, today announ­ces an invest­ment from growth-focu­­sed equity inves­tor Verdane. Qbtech is the market leader in objec­tive measu­re­ment of ADHD symptoms and is trans­forming ADHD treat­ment for indi­vi­du­als and society at large. In colla­bo­ra­tion with health­care and educa­tion profes­sio­nals in the U.S. and Europe, Qbtech shor­tens time to diagno­sis and enab­les opti­miz­a­tion of treat­ment for child­ren and adults with ADHD. Verdane’s invest­ment will help Qbtech further acce­le­rate growth through new tech­no­lo­gies, new custo­mer segments and by signi­fi­cantly expan­ding in exis­ting markets.

Qbtech’s mission is to improve the lives of people with ADHD and to help more pati­ents access quality treat­ment. To achieve this, Qbtech will support pati­ents and promote new models of care that incre­ase access to care while impro­ving clini­cal and medi­cal outco­mes. Qbtech’s current products improve the skills of profes­sio­nals through objec­tive data and trai­ning, helping to address the dual chal­len­ges of work­force shor­ta­ges and the drama­tic incre­ase in demand for ADHD care following the COVID pande­mic. Future products will build on this and put pati­ents at the center of their treatment.

“Verdane is an expe­ri­en­ced inves­tor in health­care soft­ware, and we look forward to working with Qbtech at this pivo­tal moment in their growth jour­ney,” said Henrik Aspén of Verdane (photo, copy­right Verdane). “Qbtech offers unique tech­no­logy that is driving the stan­dard for clini­cal vali­da­tion and advan­cing new tech­no­lo­gies at a rapid pace. Our team is impres­sed with their breakthrough, inno­va­tive tech­no­lo­gies that improve care, reduce health­care costs and provide an amazing expe­ri­ence for pati­ents and their families.”

The invest­ment in Qbtech is made from Verdane’s Idun Fund, which is clas­si­fied as “Arti­cle 9” under the EU Finan­cial Disclo­sure Regu­la­tion. Idun makes invest­ments focu­sed on driving impact in three areas: Energy Tran­si­tion, Sustainable Consump­tion, and Resi­li­ent Commu­nities. Previous invest­ments include Auntie, a digi­tal provi­der of work­place well­ness services; Spond, a digi­tal provi­der of grass­roots sports and physi­cal health; and EVA Global, a mana­ged services provi­der suppor­ting the global shift to electric vehi­cles. To date, Verdane has inves­ted in over 30 sustainable society companies.

“We are plea­sed that Verdane is confi­dent in our track record and mission to trans­form ADHD care. We have always stri­ved to import the best aspects of health­care tech­no­logy into medi­cal tech­no­logy, and Verdane’s exper­tise in tech­no­logy and soft­­ware-enab­­led busi­nes­ses will be of great value to us,” said Carl Reuter­s­kiold, CEO of Qbtech.
