British tennis player, Andy Murray has backed two more early-stage businesses as part of his strategic relationship with Seedrs.

Today (December 6), Murray is to invest undisclosed amounts into innovative UK tech companies, GoodBox and ZoomDoc. Each of the startups’ sectors, the charity space and healthtech, are said to be ripe for disruption.

Murray has an extensive charitable background, having worked closely with charities including Unicef, WWF, United for Wildlife and Malaria No More.

He commented: "These two businesses provide innovative, much-needed solutions. GoodBox has the potential to revolutionise the way we donate to charity, they’re already working with many trusted organisations such as Comic Relief.

"I’ve been involved in the digital health space for a while now, primarily getting schools focused on creating digital solutions for health problems, so ZoomDoc interested me. The company has shown impressive growth and feedback since its soft-launch."
