Kolkata-based healthtech startup, Tiyo has raised $120K in angel funding from veteran entrepreneurs from Middle East including Anish K & Ajith Nair, CEO iAdepto Global.
Tiyo was launched in May 2015 by Ranna Dutta, Sandip Bodak and Sunil Mishra.
Rana Dutta, co-founder and CEO of Tiyo, said,
The current round of funding will help us strengthen our development team based out of Bangalore and will help open new sales offices in South and West.
Tiyo connects patients with doctors, and facilitates appointment booking. The patients can book appointments through a basic phone and not necessarily a smartphone. One can call on Tiyo’s toll-free number to book an appointment.
The platform provides a ‘Health View’ account wherein the patients can find all the essential information about the doctors and take their call. Additionally, more information is provided on the platform for the patients to assess which doctor can best handle their case. They are provided with ample storage capacity for their medical records, and have the option of getting more capacity by paying an annual subscription fee of Rs 700.
With a team of 30 members, the company claims to clock 10,000 appointments in a day. By March 2017, the firm expects to reach 10 lakh appointments and have two lakh doctors on board.
The company has also partnered with clinical centres, to come on board starting next month.
Tiyo soon plans to close $750K pre-Series A round. It has also received mentor support from IvyCamp.
The platform is currently available in four cities including Kolkata, Bengaluru, Pune and Hyderabad. It plans to roll out in 10 more cities, like Chennai, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad amongst others, by the end of this year.
