Medinfi Healthcare Pvt. Limited, which provides an Android app to help users locate the nearest doctors and hospitals for their everyday check-ups, on Thursday said it had raised Rs.2 crore from individual investors and entrepreneurs.
The investors include Ram Kumar Kakani, professor at management institute XLRI, Pradeep K. Jaisingh, chairman, Healthstart; Sunil T V, co-founder, IVFA; Vijay Ghadge, COO, Gojavas, Hemant Kaul , ex-CEO & MD of Bajaj Allianz General Insurance and Gurmeet Chahal, senior vice-president and head of healthcare at HCL Technologies Ltd, among others.
The company intends to use the funds for launching mobile application for iPhone users, apart from expanding its operations to 10 Indian cities over the next three months.
The company, which is looking to expand its team, was started by Ravi Shankar Mishra in July last year. Prior to forming the company, Mishra, who is a graduate from Birla Institute of Technology, Ranchi, and a post graduate from XLRI, Jamshedpur, spent one-and-half-years on market research.
“We have always thrived to offer genuine and trustworthy information to our users. With this funding, we would be able to further strengthen our content operations in multiple cities while also scaling our user base to both Android as well as iOS users in these cities,” said Mishra.
Earlier this year, the company was selected by Facebook Inc. for its Bootstrap Program for start-ups called FBStart, wherein the company received free resources worth $30,000 from Facebook and its partners. Later, it was recognized by Facebook for its social impact.
