GOQii has gained $50 million in its Series C round from Sumeru Ventures. Other investors include UK Primary Healthcare and Modality, 9Unicorns, Venture Catalysts, MegaDelta, Mitsui, The Times Group, Ascendo, Akbar Khan of Rain Instant Pay and Sanjay Narang. 

The debt funding was led by Blacksoil Capital and Trifecta Capital. The fund will be used to strengthen their current offerings of fitness tracker, app and real-time coaching along with adding new features like insurance and digital therapeutics.

GOQii was started by Vishal Gondal, Abhishek Sharma, Sachin Janghel and Champ Alreja in 2014. They came out with a wearable fitness band that collects the vitals of the user and lends them expert advice to help them achieve their health and fitness goals. 

They had partnered with Thyrocare and Max Healthcare to offer medical consultations to its users. They are now set to launch international offerings focusing on various solutions around preventive healthcare. The venture has raised $102.6 million in 14 rounds of funding. 

GOQii is in a space with heavy competition from HealthifyMe, Ultrahuman HQ, Gymtrack and Tonal. Yet it is the only Indian startup besides Flipkart and Paytm to have been featured as a case study for the Harvard Business Publishing Platform.
