About Organization

Dialogue was founded by Cherif Habib, Anna Chif and Alexis Smirnov in the spring of 2016 with a mission to remove barriers to quality healthcare for all Canadians. Combining backgrounds in entrepreneurship, consulting and technology, they have since built a team of smart, caring and ambitious individuals that have rapidly scaled the business across the country. Dialogue is now the leading telemedicine (also known as virtual healthcare) provider in Canada and has begun to grow internationally as well.

To achieve their mission the co-founders built a product and go-to-market strategy focused on supporting employers and their employees. With an integrated set of web and mobile tools, Dialogue drives immediate access to a team of multidisciplinary health professionals and real measurable health, engagement, and productivity outcomes for all employees across an organization.

Today, Dialogue supports more than 450 forward-thinking employers and several hundred thousand employees and their families. Despite consulting with over 800 patients each day (more than the busiest emergency rooms in Canada!), their net promoter score (NPS) is consistently 70+ and their mobile app is amongst the highest rated on Apple’s App Store.

In the last year, they've partnered with some of the largest insurers in Canada (e.g. Canada Life (GWL), SSQ, iA), acquired an AI triage tool, and announced the closing of a successful $40M Series B led by the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec. The CDPQ joins White Star Capital, Holtzbrinck Ventures, Portag3 Ventures, National Bank, Walter Capital, Diagram Ventures, among others, around the table.

Dialogue more than tripled their revenues in 2017 and 2018 are expecting to triple again this year, and they are looking for a strong thought partner with a highly impressive track record of success and achievements to be their very first Chief Financial Officer.
