Co-founders Robin McFee and Joel Matsumoto met while attending UBC’s New Venture Design course.  At the time Robin was studying for his B.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Joel was pursuing a B.Sc. in Computer Sciences. Robin, Joel and a small team of colleagues on the New Venture Design course originated and evolved several business concepts before fine tuning their solution based on extensive feedback from potential customers. Upon graduation Robin and Joel committed to their venture full time, raised a small round of seed financing from friends and family, and began to build their product and business. With a set of early customers in hand, the company went on to raise a further tranche of seed funding that included sophisticated angels and the e@UBC Seed Fund.

Clinicbook has been acquired by CareCru in 2016.
