The current round of funding will be used to strengthen product development, IP and tap the right talent to foster company’s growth in the tech led healthcare space.

It then identifies potential health risks from the data, provides a personalized health plan to beat those risks.

eKincare’s current round of funding comes close to the seed fund amounting to Rs 2 crore that the company had raised last year in January, 2015 from Bitkemy Ventures and Adroitent, a pioneer in healthcare IT.

 Kiran Kalakuntla, Founder & CEO, eKincare said, “We have seen tremendous excitement and interest from corporates to leverage our platform for their employees, keep track of the overall organization’s wellness metrics and maximize the ROI out of their wellness budgets. This round of funding was raised to bring in few strategic investors on board and will be utilized to further improve the B2B offering, expand to other cities and hiring for operations in new cities.”

The platform is free for the user with no limits on the data stored and allows multiple profile management.

  • Nice move. Need more health startups in India. A country’s strength depends a lot on the healthcare industry standards. A lot needs to be invested on more health startups. With the advent of online shopping, sale of medicines online should be boosted, so as to reduce the costing and increase the ease of purchasing medicines.
