App For Ambulances

The aim was to make ambulance services as accessible as finding food in the current scenario. Medulance has set its sights on raising USD 1-2 million in the next 6-8 months

In the emergency healthcare sector, response time is one of the most crucial factors. According to several reports, in developed countries, it takes less than 7 minutes to reach a patient whereas, in India, it takes an average of over 45 minutes. 

As founders were coming from a non-medical background, they had to fully comprehend the emergency response industry. “Our belief was and still is that assistance should be provided when it matters the most,” Co-founder, Bajaj shares. The big challenge they faced was creating a top-of-mind recall of whom to call and when to call in emergency situations. 

Quicker Response In Emergencies

The Delhi-based startup caters to the rising demand for ambulance services across Indian cities and towns through its 7500-vehicle fleet that reaches 15-20 minutes of an emergency call. 

It boasts that its 5G smart-connected ambulances have the potential to revolutionise the emergency response service. Its ambulances are equipped with the latest technology and are designed to take patients to the nearest hospital in the shortest possible time, even if it's located 60-75 minutes away. In addition to serving as transportation units, our ambulances can also act as remote monitoring units, providing real-time patient data to hospitals and medical professionals

Co-founder, Pranav Bajaj mentions, “The emergency response sector was scattered and access to quality and affordable medical assistance was a challenge for the nation. With so many scattered players, entering the industry and making an impact was a challenge.”

Medulance has always been committed to building sustainable and high-impact businesses. Being a bootstrapped organization that has been profitable is a substantial factor that has helped them deal with the current uncertainty. Founders claim that the company has been profitable for three years now.

Roadmap for 2023

The company has always aimed to increase its targets periodically, and last year, it was satisfied with the kind of month-on-month growth it achieved. 

In order to take the company to the next level and achieve its growth targets, Medulance has set its sights on raising USD 1-2 million in the next 6-8 months. The fundraising process is already underway. This funding will allow the company to expand its operations and invest in key areas such as technology, marketing, and hiring. It is also planning on expanding its business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-government (B2G) operations.
