Mecura Founder Journey

Mecura was founded by Akbar Khan. Currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from SRM University (Chennai). Co-founded by Aquib Hasnain, currently pursuing Information Technology at St. Thomas’ College of Engineering and Technology (Kolkata), and Ankush Malhotra who has completed a Master’s in Computer Science (Delhi).

” My frequent sneezing during my childhood days went unnoticed by my parents because I would stay in a hostel. This led to serious sinus trouble which needed immediate medication. However, this situation could be avoided if my parents could track my health even when sitting miles away from me.

This is a common problem in India, where a child is taken to a doctor only when he/she falls seriously ill. And there is no escape but to go through a number of tests. My curiosity about this issue.

A keen interest in entrepreneurship has enabled me to start Mecura through which parents can track the medical records of their children. With just the click of a button i.e. the digital version of paper-based prescriptions, called Electron Medical Record (EMR).

Since then, my journey with Mecura along with Aquib and Ankush has been only fetching me with knowledge and experience.”  Said Akbar Khan, Founder. Mecura has already been featured among the top five startups selected in IIT Bombay. It was also among 40 start-ups to get selected in the Bioasia Convention 2016.
