Konsult has raised $500,000 in two rounds of seed funding from angel investors from the U.S., U.K., Netherlands and Australia.

Konsult, launched in 2015 to connect doctors and patients for follow-up care, is adding first-round consultations and second opinions.

Telehealth is a growing market in India, where qualified doctors are in short supply. Konsult partners with licensed doctors so patients can avoid the wait in health facilities.

Konsult’s platform lists 1,200 physicians and takes 30 percent of each consultation fee.

The angel investors include Jeroen Mensen of Credit Suisse Investments and Koen Bouwers, who also has invested in Terrafugia, a company developing flying cars.
