Our mission is to make life easier for the employed Indians who pay for their healthcare from their pockets and the HR Teams at the companies they work for. We were particularly excited about the network of individual investors that are now part of our story, as a result of this fundraise. They bring industry access and mentorship as we navigate the complex nature of the Indian healthcare system,” shared Chris George, co-founder, and chief executive officer, Qube Health.
