"CureSkin's use of computer vision technology to offer a dermatologist service on the phone is a real testimonial of the power of artificial intelligence," said Vinish Kathuria, the Managing Partner at SenseAI Ventures, while talking about his investment.
He added, "At SenseAI, we believe in empowering smart entrepreneurs to make a difference in people's lives, and CureSkin is a prime example of that belief."
Now, CureSkin will use the fresh funds to bolster its technical infrastructure and bring new features to its platform. Plus, it will use the resources to bolster its marketing efforts and focus on building new alliances.
Prior to this round, the start-up had received $1 million seed funding from Khosla Ventures, Gagarin Capital, Y Combinator, and Heartbeat labs.
Healthcare start-ups have attracted a lot of investors
Like CureSkin, many other healthcare start-ups have attracted the attention of investors.
This includes Healthians, the Yuvraj Singh-backed diagnostic start-up that had received $12 million in a Series-B round of funding, as well as start-ups like WonDRx, NeuroLeap, and Meddo, which have also caught the eyes of top-tier VCs and several angel investors from different parts of the world.
