Delhi based healthcare startup Healers At Home has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Daljit Singh (President of Fortis Healthcare), Dr. Pramath Raj Sinha (Founder ISB), BVR Mohan Reddy (Chairman at NASSCOM & Director on the Board of Hyderabad Angels) and a few more investors. The startup was first accelerated by 91Springboard.
The startup founded in 2014 currently provides nursing services like Physiotherapy and Yoga in Delhi-NCR. According to the founder of the company, the consumer just needs to register on the website or the mobile platform and they send a trainer/Doctor at their home.
The funding will be used to expand the team, add more services and marketing of the services.
The founder, Kshitij Garg, has previously worked at 9.9 Media, the office of member of parliament, Naveen Jindal and National Social Entrepreneurship Forum. He completed his education from Young India Fellowship (in collaboration with University of Pennsylvania). The team of ‘Healers At Home’ also include people from the background of IIT Kanpur, IIT Guwahati and Young India Fellowship.
When asked about the story behind it, the founder explained how his own personal medical problems grew in the early stage with his hectic job schedule and he wanted to ease any such trouble people go through everyday. This is how the idea for health-care services at home came to his mind.
The App of the service will be available on iOS and Android platform in near future.
The competition is also rising on this segment with Mumbai based startup Care24 recently bagged $350,000 of funding. While the biggest player in this segment, Portea has aggressively marketed their services supported by $46.5 million of investment from VCs. Other corporates such as Apollo Hospitals and Dabur are also eyeing the similar market with their own solutions.
