Mumbai-based primary healthcare services aggregator, HealthAssure is in conversation with Venture Capital (VC) firms to raise $7 million. The start-up, which counts serial entrepreneur Rajul Garg as mentor, intends to close the Series A funding (first institutional fund-raising) by February.
“We are in discussions with about seven VC firms, of which talks with about three are in very advanced stages. It could be either a syndicate fund raising or could be from one single player,” disclosed Varun Gera, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, HealthAssurein.
The company will invest the proceeds from the funding; the firm’s third round of fund raising, for organic growth. This would be mainly for technology upgradation and marketing and sales.
