From the Co-Founders: Announcing Series B funding

Announcing Series B funding for ekincare's employee health platform

As we grow stronger & faster, here's yet another milestone to celebrate!

We at ekincare are happy to announce that we have successfully raised $15 million in a Series B funding round led by HealthQuad and Sabre Partners, along with participation from existing investors Ventureast, Eight Roads Ventures, Siana Capital, and Endiya Partners.

We're just getting started! Watch the video.

ekincare began with the intent to make a positive impact on the fragmented and difficult to navigate healthcare system in India. We have come a long way from that initial goal, with many more miles to go!

Now, our goal is to ramp up growth and deliver simplified health benefits & insurance experiences to employers and employees.

As a personalized, full-stack & highly customizable health benefits platform, our services are built to help employers design a health benefits package that best suits the needs of their employees and their families.

3X Growth with cutting-edge technology

We expect to grow by another 3X post this round. In a post-pandemic world, employee well-being has increasingly become the focal point of every employer’s strategy.

Our patented platform considers behavioral data and uses it to personalize an employee’s health benefits journey, resulting in higher benefits adoption, employee engagement, and better health outcomes. The longitudinal depth of this information is helping payers underwrite health risks better, in turn making healthcare affordable for employers.

Driving better corporate health

As per the Corporate Health and Wellness Market study by Redseer, the corporate health and wellness market in India is worth $7 billion and is expected to grow at 20% CAGR.

However, even today, the market remains highly fragmented in India, and ekincare’s one-stop employee health benefits platform aims to resolve the difficulties faced by corporations in accessing better employee healthcare. This is achieved through integration with thousands of healthcare service providers across insurance, hospitals, diagnostics, teleconsultation providers, e-pharmacy, and mental wellness.

ekincare’s mission

ekincare also strives to be as user-friendly as possible, by helping employers provide all the relevant health benefits under one roof through a completely digital platform. This also gives employees the flexibility to choose benefits based on their diverse and specific needs.
