Alyve Health Secures $5.5 Million in Series A Funding to Fuel Expansion and Enhance Healthcare Coverage for Millions of Users in India

Mumbai, June 18, 2024: Alyve Health, India’s fastest-growing health tech platform, announced a Series A funding round of $5.5 million. The investment round was led by Axilor Ventures and saw participation from 1Crowd Fund, an existing investor, as well as Inhealth Ventures, a healthcare-focused fund. The company also raised venture debt fund from Trifecta Capital as part of this round. The health tech company plans to use the new funds for strategic growth initiatives across key areas like platform enhancement, talent acquisition, expansion of operations, amplification of services, and higher member engagement.

Alyve’s health plans cover multiple healthcare journeys like doctor consultations, diagnostics, medicine purchases, dental procedures, gym memberships, and proactive well-being. The personalized plans, cashless experience and assured care across prevention & cure sets the brand apart. The Alyve Health platform is seamlessly integrated with payers (insurers, TPAs), intermediaries (brokers, financial institutions, digital platforms), and providers (clinics, diagnostic centers, fitness studios). The platform provides tailored solutions to multiple groups – employees, customers, and channel partners – and currently serves over 1 million members.

Founded by Shashank Avadhani, Sushant Roy, and Vineet Mehta in May 2020, Alyve Health was built with the vision to provide unparalleled coverage and simplify the health plan experience for its members. The company has won several awards including Dun and Bradstreet’s LEAP India Trailblazer, Integrated Health & Wellbeing (IHW) Council’s Healthcare Startup of the Year as well as the Healthy Lifestyle Startup of the Year.

“We are thrilled to secure more fuel for our growth,” said Shashank Avadhani, Co-founder & CEO at Alyve Health. “This investment empowers us to continue innovating on our product and technology. We are privileged to play a significant role in shaping the future of health plans.”

With rising incomes and awareness, consumers are asking for offerings beyond just hospitalization benefits.
