Dawaai is an online pharmacy that has warehouses in several cities across the country. Through its B2B and B2C offering, Dawaai is looking to dominate the $3 billion industry in Pakistan and become the largest pharmaceutical aggregator in the country. It also provides qualitative information addressing the problem of bad advice at retail pharmacies and ensures authenticity of drugs to customers.
Pakistan’s pharmaceutical industry continues to grow at a double digit rate and the existing retail market remains fragmented. We believe the size of the market and the fragmented nature of retail operations provides an opportunity for Dawaai to disrupt the pharmacy space right now and over time lead the digitization of the healthcare industry in Pakistan.
Dawaai was founded by Furquan, a Cambridge University graduate who relocated to Pakistan from London after fulfilling roles at Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and RBS.
