MediBuddy, India’s leading digital healthcare platform announced the closure of its $40 Million Series B Round. This follows the recent infusion of $20 million led by India Life Sciences Fund III, LLC and Bessemer Venture Partners with participation from FinSight Ventures. The digital healthcare platform had earlier announced an initial funding of $20 million (INR 150 crores) in June 2020 under this round. MediBuddy is led by co-founders Mr. Satish Kannan & Mr. Enbasekar, as the CEO and the CTO, respectively.
COVID-19 has created an unprecedented acceleration in digital healthcare adoption and MediBuddy has been at the forefront of this transformation. To-date, over 3 crore Indians have used the mobile and web platforms to access specialist doctors 24×7 on video, order medicines and book home collection of lab samples. In addition, several Fortune 500 companies in India have trusted MediBuddy as their preferred digital healthcare partner to help their employees access various healthcare benefits.
In June 2020, to create market leadership in the digital healthcare industry, DocsApp (India’s leading online doctor consultation platform) merged with MediBuddy. Going forward, both MediBuddy and DocsApp will operate under a single brand name — MediBuddy.
Mr. Vikul Goyal, Venture Partner, FinSight Ventures, said, “Telemedicine in India is growing at a monumental pace and the pandemic has only further amplified the importance of going digital. MediBuddy is by far the leader in the digital healthcare space in terms of scale, size & customers served; and we are excited to partner with MediBuddy in this growth journey to make high-quality healthcare accessible to a billion Indians”
