Speaking on the investment and the prospect of the startup, Peng said:

“Millions of people across Asia find it difficult to access proper treatment and care for health conditions that have tremendous taboo attached.

“Through products such as Noah and Zoey, Ordinary Folk is uniquely positioned to bring value through the consumer journey of healthcare services, creating an ecosystem where patients have access to medical experts and products, and a wide range of treatment options.”
