The Hyderabad-based startup has partnered with 50+ hospitals and 70+ enterprises and is looking to expand to 15+ cities in India by the end of this year, a step towards providing access to people across the country.
Suhas Kulkarni, Founding Member, Chief Product, and Technology Officer said, "StanPlus is on a mission to solve the country's emergency response crisis.

I am elated to announce that I will be helping build technology at StanPlus.
He also added that he will be working towards contributing to StanPlus' quest to create a medical infrastructure model akin to 911 and save millions of lives during the 'Golden Hour.'
