MUMBAI, INDIA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/26/12 -- Thyrocare Technologies Limited, a leading medical diagnostics services provider based in Mumbai, today announced that it has entered into a binding agreement to receive INR 120 crores from Norwest Venture Partners (NVP). Thyrocare will use the new capital to fund further expansion of its business. Also a part of today's announcement, Sohil Chand, Managing Director of NVP India, will join Thyrocare's board of directors.
The diagnostics market in India is INR 10,000 crore in size and growing rapidly, as consumer awareness and education around preventive healthcare is leading to increased spending on higher quality testing. Thyrocare, with a "single laboratory for Billion Population" model, is a sector leader in India. Thyrocare's experienced and visionary management team has built a broad presence across India and operates the largest network in the Asia Pacific region. The company's network of 20,000 service centers spans 1,000 cities across India, covers more than 100,000 doctors through 600 franchisees, and processes over 100,000 investigations each night. Thyrocare's business is built around strong and efficient logistics and the extensive and innovative use of information technology, such as proprietary analyzer and laboratory automations that are unique to the company. Thyrocare remains an undisputed leader in the numerical pathology space, where its enhanced work efficiencies result in lower general preventive care costs for consumers -- particularly in Thyroid testing.
Commented Dr. A Velumani, MD and CEO of Thyrocare Technologies Limited: "This second, successive and significant investment from a globally acclaimed investor like NVP is a testimony for the health of the diagnostic industry and Thyrocare's leadership position in the space. When CX partners invested, we were motivated and ventured into Nueclear, (the in-vivo segment). Now with NVP investing, we will be exploring global markets. The enhanced management bandwidth will facilitate scaling up the in-vitro model globally and in-vivo model nationally, to a desired size and with relative ease."
Ajay Relan, Managing Partner, CX Advisors, said: "We are very pleased to have Norwest as a shareholder in Thyrocare. The firm's expertise and network in healthcare and technology will add muscle to the already formidable strength of the Thyrocare franchise."
Added Sohil Chand, NVP India: "Thyrocare makes healthcare more easily accessible and affordable to millions of people throughout India. The company provides highly differentiated, comprehensive, low cost preventive tests to the masses that can ultimately save lives. Furthermore, Thyrocare is a highly profitable organization that is on a strong growth trajectory due to its unique business model, strong management team and significant traction to date. We are excited to work with Thyrocare's talented and experienced team and invest in a proven company that is making such a tremendous impact on the Indian healthcare system."

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
