Healthians.com, a diagnostic and wellness start-up, has today announced that it has raised $3 Million in its Series A round of funding, led by Beenext. Along with Beenext, Digital Garage, Japan; BEENOS and others have also participated in this round.
The company is India’s largest health test at home service, creating a new benchmark for very high quality and honest prices.
It employs state of art 46 touchpoints technology for assuring quality collection and testing across its tightly controlled network of labs and hundreds of full-time phlebotomists. Coolsure and Blackcode technology ensure sample transportation in an environment proof way- safe from heat, sunlight, contamination and human error. Smartprick technology ensures minimum pain by precision laser guided blood collection.
Speaking of the funding round, Deepak Sahni, founder of Healthians.com said, “We spent the last few months putting the entire operations and quality piece into processes will be automating everything possible. I am glad that Healthians.com revenue is by far the highest while we are still in Delhi/NCR as compared to other players in the space. We have been getting continuous support and confidence from our Investors and this round adds great validation to our model. By 2019, we will be India’s largest diagnostic brand.”
Teruhide Sato, founder and managing Partner, BEENEXT, said, I saw a sustainable business being created which is there to stay for the long term. Diagnostics is a huge market in India and has room for many more players. Healthian’s unique model with focus on quality, cost and customer experience is highly scalable and expandable to other markets.”
The company was incubated by Healthstart in November 2014, followed by a seed round investment in 2015 by YouWeCan, the investment arm of an iconic survivor, champion and cricket legend Yuvraj Singh who is the face of Healthians.
