Welcome Cure, a first of its kind online health tech platform for alternate medicine, has nabbed a whopping $6 Million in its first officially announced funding round. The company has raised USD 1 Million from few high net-worth individuals and USD 5 Million from one of India’s largest media house — both the names though unknown.
