Medinfi Healthcare gets fresh angel funding
Bangalore-based Medinfi Healthcare Pvt Ltd, a pure-play platform for searching doctors and hospitals through web and mobile app, has raised an undisclosed amount from three angel investors, including Rajnish Sinha, senior vice president at Genpact,
Prijit Debnath and Kanchan Ghoshal, IT and HR professionals, respectively, were the other new investors, while existing angel investors, including Ram Kumar Kakani, a professor at XLRI, also participated in this fourth round of angel funding, the company said in a statement.
The company, which was started in 2014, intends to use the funds for launching its iOS mobile application and for expanding its operations to 13 Indian cities in the coming months.
Medinfi helps users locate the nearest doctors and hospitals for check-ups, but does not have revenue tie-ups with either doctors or hospitals and hence does not book appointments.
"Medinfi will continue to empower users by offering trusted information for health check-ups. It will enhance the user experience through its mobile application while growing the curated content coverage," said Ravi Shankar Mishra, founder and CEO, Medinfi.
Mishra has earlier been associated with Amazon and Jabong.
Currently, the application is available for users in Bengaluru, Delhi, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Noida, Mumbai and Navi Mumbai with information on over 7,000 doctors, hospitals and clinics.
Medinfi users can also review the images and other information of more than 3,000 clinics and doctors which is compiled by its team after actual visits to the clinics.
Earlier in December, the company raised Rs 1 crore ($150,000) in a fresh round of angel funding from four new investors, taking the total angel funding in the firm across three rounds to Rs 2 crore.
Medinfi is trying to make a space for itself in a market which has some heavily funded startups such as Practo and Lybrate besides HelpingDoc. Many players in the space also allow users to book appointments.
