Product/Service Summary

Over 500 million Indians are now connected via mobile internet, however, only 30% can use it in some form as content is primarily created in English. Rest 70% (350m users and this is going to double in 5 years) are unable to discover important health related information due to language issues.

We at http://www.myUpchar.com intend to change that by first creating content in 3 most popular languages in India (Hindi, Tamil, Kannad) and then in future, provide a free 1-800 type telephone number for users to consult a doctor across India. We believe that we can generate over 1 million calls per day in 3-4 year time frame and 100 million visitors/month on web/mobile property by making health care far more accessible in remote areas.
