India’s patient-centric online health aggregation platform Zoctr has raised an undisclosed sum in pre-Series A round of funding from Times Group’s Brand Capital.

The Mumbai-based startup plans to use the funds for advertising and marketing activities.

Zoctr, which currently has operations in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Pune and Ahmedabad, also plans to expand across the country.

The startup had earlier raised two round of angel funding totalling US$1.1 million in 2015.

Founded by Nidhi Saxena in 2014, Zoctr aggregates home health, tele-health, remote patient monitoring services targetted at post-acute, chronic and terminal patients through its iZoctr website as well as mobile app.

Currently, the startup employs around 100 employees.

Under the Brand Capital Incubator Funding Model, Times Group makes equity funding for long-term brand building and advertising needs of growth-oriented companies.
