Google backs Indian mobile online doctor community

Curofy wins support from the firm's Launchpad Accelerator programme

Digital pharma CurofyA new online mobile network for doctors is among the startups to receive the backing of Google's Launchpad Accelerator programme.

Curofy claims to be India's largest online community of verified doctors, with over 190,000 members from more than 600 cities.

Its flagship app, which is available for both Apple and Android devices, allows them to discuss medical cases and provides access to medical news and jobs. 

Curofy's co-founder Pawan Gupta told BWDisrupt: "Google Accelerator provides a great opportunity for Indian startups to be mentored in best product and engineering practices followed in Silicon Valley. The learning and exposure from the accelerator will prepare Curofy's product for its growth beyond India".

As it does so one of its competitors will likely be MedShr, which was launched last year by a UK doctor as a similarly mobile-first social work.

Curofy, which is based near New Delhi in Gurgaon, joins the third wave of startups in the Google's Launchpad programme, among them a word game app and one for CRM.

The companies are now inline for six months mentorship and a share of $50,000 in equity-free funding.
