Today, we are excited to announce an awesome perk for current participants and alumni of Y-Combinator who are building in India: Free mental health counseling sessions every quarter and unlimited, free primary care for you and your families.
Before YC, we spent several years exploring every corner of the healthcare and health insurance markets in India. We saw so many opportunities to improve experiences for customers and fix the fundamental misalignment between healthcare providers and patients.
We spent 18 months building products and experimenting with different business models. In January 2020 we joined YC and it was one the best things for our startup.
No doubt, without the direct guidance of Michael Seibel, Tracy Young, Kevin Lin, and Aaron Epstein, we'd be in a different place today. Our advisors provided us incredible support and helped us find the path to a scaleable, value-generating business.
Now we're driven by a single mission: power excellent health benefits for modern Indian companies with personalized, always-on care for every employee.
Why mental health?
No doubt, 2020 was a tough year for many of us. As founders, we already find ourselves in the pressure-cooker. The responsibility to manage capital, strive for higher targets, and support your team can quickly become too much to handle.
With the added effects of the pandemic, lock-down, and social distancing, this year was all-the-more difficult. At Loop Health, we’ve built a vast network of specialists across all areas of health. This year, we believe it’s particularly important to focus on mental health.
Personally, I’ve seen a huge reduction in my anxiety levels & an improvement in sleep because of my work with Loop Health therapists. They’re founder-friendly, understand what I’m going through and provide practical solutions to ease some of the stress I’ve been going through.
How this deal works?
India-based YC teams and alumni can get access to a free mental health counseling session and unlimited primary care through the Loop Health app. Founders can also schedule unlimited primary care consults anytime with our in-house team of family-medicine specialists. You can add up to 3 family members for free.
If you're a YC founder or alumni and interested in activating your Loop membership, sign up here. Your Loop Health medical advisor will reach out to you to get started.
*This particular perk is only for founders of YC-backed companies and their families, but does not cover employees.*
Also, if you’re interested in getting your employee health insurance through Loop this year, please visit Loop Health or DM me directly on Twitter. Cheers to 2021! Let's make it a great year for startup founders in India.
