Now the founders of Gigstart (a startup connecting artists to their clients) have launched a hyperlocal delivery startup for health and medical needs, named Pluss.
Talking of the reason behind starting Pluss, Atit Jain, said, “The healthcare industry in India is largely unorganised, despite the fact that it is worth billions of dollars. The small chemist accounts for about 95% of the pharmacy market while only 5% of it is controlled by branded players like Apollo and Big Chemist. The opportunity to have a branded network that could aggregate all these chemists arose right here.”
Atit Jain, Madhulika Pandey and Tarun Lawadia co-founded Pluss in 2015. Before this, In 2013 Atit Jain and Madhulika Pandey had also co-founded another enterprise – ‘Gigstart’, which is an online portal to facilitate finding and booking artists for private and public events. The startup raised $210k in seed funding from a group of investors in December 2014.
Company’s investors include Snapdeal’s co-founders Rohit Bansal & Kunal Bahl, Indian Dream Capital and Rajesh Sawhney of GSF, Narendra Singh Rawat, TA Venture Holding Limited, Roshan Abbas, and Anand Chandrasekaran.
