They had partnered with Thyrocare and Max Healthcare to offer medical consultations to its users. They are now set to launch international offerings focusing on various solutions around preventive healthcare. The venture has raised $102.6 million in 14 rounds of funding.
GOQii is in a space with heavy competition from HealthifyMe, Ultrahuman HQ, Gymtrack and Tonal. Yet it is the only Indian startup besides Flipkart and Paytm to have been featured as a case study for the Harvard Business Publishing Platform.
