New Delhi, Nov 16 (UiTV/IANS) – Digital diabetes care platform BeatO on Wednesday said that it has raised $33 million in Series B funding led by Lightrock India with participation from HealthQuad, Flipkart and existing investors.
The fresh funding will be used to scale BeatO’s platform, continue to invest in its product and technology, and to strengthen the reach of its evidence-based care programmes, it said in a statement.
Founded by Gautam Chopra, Yash Sehgal and Kunal Kinalekar, BeatO provides an affordable, comprehensive and patient-centric digital solution to millions of people with diabetes who have limited access to good quality and continuous care.
