CIIE, IIM Ahmedabad Invests in two HealthTech startups

CIIE has invested in two HealthTech startups – Doux Dentistry and Zeolr. Doux Dentistry, an innovative dental care startup aiming to make dental care affordable & accessible for patients at their homes under the brand name Mobident, and Zeolr, an IoT-based healthcare startup that is developing solutions to aid in better management of chronic diseases by patients and availability of information to physicians for regular supervision, revision and reinforcement.

Founded by Dr. Devaiah, a dentist with over twenty years of experience, and Vivek Madappa, a serial entrepreneur, Doux Dentistry, already has presence in four cities – Bangalore, Pune, Mysore, and Ahmedabad. Lack of awareness and the consequence of neglecting dental health among the population are the barriers that they want to address.

Mobident’s “Dental clinic in a Suitcase” is an asset-light model designed to address the core challenges of dental care industry such as end-user experience and high cost of dental services in India. It’s first-of-its-kind model is one tenth the cost of setting up a new clinic and provides almost all the dental diagnostics and corrective procedures that are available in a dental clinic at the comfort of our own homes, offices, schools and hospital OPD’s. For Mobident, it is an opportunity to derive cross learnings from CIIE and propel their business to the next level through active support in fund-raise and business development

Zeolr’s flagship product, RespirON, is a comprehensive modern approach to help asthmatic and COPD patients as well as their physicians come up with the best plan for managing their conditions. It is a three tier system that includes a device and a smartphone application (compatible with Android, iOS & Windows) connected to the cloud server that helps patients and physicians consistently monitor and manage their condition. For Zeolr, CIIE comes with the much needed hands-on support to ease the hardships and mitigate the risks that most early-stage startups experience. The Zeolr team consists of 2 passionate engineers, Roshit and Ajay, who began working on their dream venture right from college.
