Telemedicine platform oriented startup Doctor Insta has raised $500 K in pre series A funding from angel investor Rishi Parti and US-based VC firm, BrahmaX Ventures.
The startup will use the raised funds for research and deployment of the product. It also plans to raise more funds, close to $1-$2 Mn, in order to expand the team, conduct marketing and promotional activities.
Amit Munjal, co-founder & CEO of Doctor Insta said, “The funds raised have been invested in the research and deployment of the product and with the next round of funding we will be expanding our team, conducting marketing and promotion activities and bringing in new innovative dimensions to our product to offer seamless healthcare service. I really hope that by providing instant healthcare access, we can increase average Indian’s life span by 10 years and productivity of the nation by 15-20 per cent.”
Gurgaon-based Doctor Insta started its operations in 2015 as a “Video-Medicine” platform that provides online consultation in general medicine, pediatrics, psychology and nutrition. The startup aims to bridge the consultation gap between doctors and patients, through a digital channel. Through the video, the users can be audio-visually connected to the specialists and get treatment advice specialties within 15-30 minutes.
