Harinarayan Sharma, managing director at MEMG CDC Ventures said that Portea is likely to hire close to 6,000 personnel in two years and upgrade the skills of its personnel. “Our investment in Portea will help the company scale and embed technology to improve efficiency and effectiveness in its delivery. We’re providing patient, long-term capital to Portea for it to develop capabilities to reach out to many more customers and offer a comprehensive range of “out of hospital care services,” Sharma further added.

Portea operates across four major segments: primary care, chronic disease management, elder care and post-operative care. Services offered include physiotherapy, doctor consultations, new mother-and-baby care, specialty pharmacy, nutritional wellness, diabetic care, surgery discovery and tele-consultation.
