Give a brief info about your startup?
DSN is trying to take healthcare at the Door Step of every citizen!! No need to pay hefty hospital bills along with discomfort and terms set forth by hospital management. Presently we are offering following services –
Elderly Care at Home, Nursing Care at Home, Attendant Care at Home, Mother & Child Care, Pre & Post operational care,Physiotherapy at Home, Medicine order on call.
What made you start your startup and what problem does it solve?
I have seen my Mom Mrs. Garima Uppal doing lots of activities to make our surrounding a better living place since my childhood. Through DSN I want to solve basic problems of healthcare, elderly care at fingertips. Unlike developed countries healthcare is still a big time problem area in our country. To avail healthcare services usually we take appointments, visit hospital, spend hours in queue for few minutes session. The entire process is very painful. We are making healthcare services accessible and comfortable for every individual.
Tell us about yourself, your previous jobs/ventures? What were you doing before this startup?
I just passed my 10th exams this year and pursuing my studies along with DSN. DSN is my first venture.
Where is your startup based out of? Why do you think that is the best place for you?
We are based out in Delhi NCR presently but we are covering PAN India for few services. Being the Capital of India Delhi NCR has very dense population and most of the people are too busy to pursue their and family healthcare needs.
As a startup founder, what are you paranoid about? What keeps you awake at night?
I am paranoid about changing the way people live today in our society. I believe 80% of the healthcare problems can be reduced with on time diagnosis, treatment and convenient services. I really feel bad when I see people suffering with health problems due to ignorance, lack of time and inconvenient services.
Who are your competitions and how are you better than them?
There are a couple of insignificant competitors in market, however they are not offering kind of services we are offering. Honesty and dedication to work are key to outpace competitors. We have a best in class customer support in place to make our customer delighted.
How hard is it to have a work life balance as a startup founder and how do you manage it?
Yeah for me it is bit more difficult as I am pursuing my studies too :)!! But I am fortunate I have few highly experienced entrepreneurs are supporting me in this venture.
Have you raised funding? If yes, then we would like to know the details. If no then please tell us if you are looking to raise.
