Hyderabad based online Diagnostics services aggregator DoctorC has raised INR 2.5 Cr in convertible notes through seed-financing led by California based Leviathan Investments headed by Anil Dharni, Ram Gudavalli and Andrew Keidel, the founders of mobile gaming startup Funzio.
The funding which took place earlier this month, also saw participation of Splice Advisors, and Indian Angel Network member Sanjay Jesrani, founder and CEO of Go North Ventures.
Launched back in 2012 as a platform for sharing of MRICT services later DoctorC was pivoted as a website where people can look for the best deals in diagnostic tests by comparing prices and discounts offered by testing laboratories.
It is working with 19 diagnostic centres in Hyderabad, including Narayana Health for outpatient appointments, Dr Lal PathLabs, Elbit Diagnostics etc.
The startup also provides an additional platform for the diagnostic centres for customer acquisition. Going forward, it is also in the process of introducing a payment gateway to book tests online.
DoctorC drives 2 to 5% of the business from its partners who provide 15% discount for certain tests to customers who approach them through DoctorC platform.
The funds raised by the startup will be used to tie-up with partners to start operations in Bangalore over the next two months, followed by the National Capital Region in a year.
It is founded by Neehar Cherabuddi, previously an engineer at Siebel CRM ( Oracle Inc), Mansi Gandhi, Karan Kurani and Manya Cherabuddi.
