Based in Kolkata, iKure is an Indian social business that recently raised angel funding through the Intellecap Impact Investment Network, according to VC Circle. The amount itself is unknown at the current time. iKure has received a lot of other attention, however, and was recently shortlisted for the mHealth Initiative of the Year at the Frost & Sullivan Healthcare Excellence Awards.
The early-stage company has garnered a solid reputation through its work at creating healthcare technologies specifically for -- and created with -- rural communities through delivery system. Its goals include touching over two million individuals in the next two years. The collaborative development model is based on training people to become health workers and having health camps in the communities.
