When Saurabh Arora talks about Lybrate’s achievements, his demeanour is calm and content. His tone oscillates between assured and enthusiastic as he narrates the story of Lybrate—how he brought the most funded startup in the telemedicine space to life. As soon as the subject of competition arises, Arora suddenly shifts to an alert, almost feline defence mode. He has marked his territory. If someone wants to enter it, he needs to know who that is.
Lybrate’s closest competitor Doctor Insta has raised one-fourth of its funding and built a business model inclined towards serving businesses, not users directly.
