The startup will use the funds for technology and business development, Kunal Kishore Dhawan, co-founder and CEO, told VCCircle. He didn’t disclose the amount raised.

Navia was founded in 2015 by Dhawan, Shourjo Banerjee and Gaurav Gupta. The digital health management platform offers customized mobile apps for doctors, clinics, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies for patient monitoring, engagement and compliance.

The startup got its first two customers last month. It has created one homeopathy-specific app for a clinic and is about to launch an app for Delhi-based Radix Healthcare hospital. Navia aims to close two more clients soon.

Navia also runs a business-to-consumer app that acts as a health manager for patients, helping them monitor their treatment progress. The startup is looking to build more features for this app.

Prior to starting up, Dhawan worked at German medical devices company Fresenius Kabi. Banerjee, the chief technology officer at Navia, earlier worked at Freescale Semiconductor.

Ritesh Malik, founder of co-working space provider Innov8, and former PwC India chairman Deepak Kapoor act as mentors to the startup.
