Establishing a healthcare start-up takes prolonged emotional, financial, technical, and functional commitment.
This would be the third round of fundraising for Cloudnine. The company had raised Rs 100 crore in its second round led by Sequoia India and Matrix. Founded in 2007 by Dr Kishore Kumar, Cloudnine has expanded its operations to ten hospitals spread across Bangalore, Chennai, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Pune.
In Delhi, the biggest health issues remain Gynecology, Dermatology and Dentistry. In Mumbai, ENT, Gastroenterology and Pediatrics are the fastest growing healthcare issues. In Bangalore, the concerns are Dermatology, Pediatrics and Dentistry. In Hyderabad, Dermatology, Gynecology and ENT tops the list.
The funding round was led by Anil Menon. The Bangalore-based startup will use the funds to fuel expansion in Mumbai and NCR region by end of this year and in more than 20 cities by the first quarter of 2016. Medikoe claims to cater to 1800+ users with more than 20000+ searches on the platform.
Technology and innovation are moving at such a rapid pace that it will fundamentally shift the power of healthcare from the hands of the doctor to the individual. We can, in the near future, see the doctor when the doctor is not in.
