  • If there's a service that I often book with little time in advance, it's getting a massage. It's hard to predict when you're neck or back will ache, and when you have a free hour. So I often call on-demand, though invariably, I have to wait a few hours to get in. Now there's Soothe to the rescue, where you can request a massage therapist and have a massage at your home in an hour. The LA-based startup, which refers to itself as a mobile massage service, just raised $10.6 million, led by The Riverside Company. Much of the funds will be used to get the word out.

  • PokitDok has raised $34 million in a Series B round of funding, led by Lemhi Ventures.  The  company had previously raised $5.6 million, including a $4 million Series A round of funding in June of 2013. Previous investors in the company include New Atlantic Ventures, Rogers Venture Partners, Charles River Ventures, George Zachary, Jonathan Sposato, Geoff Entress, Albert Prast, Jason Portnoy and Zac Zeitlin. The company has now raised a total of $39.6 million in total funding.

  • Applied Life Pvt Ltd, which owns Sheroes, a jobs and career community for women, has raised an undisclosed amount from Quintillion media, start-up accelerator 500 Startups and a group of angel investors such as Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Google executive Rajan Anandan, Flipkart co-founder Binny Bansal and Freshdesk founder Girish Mathrubhootham. Mekin Maheshwari, chief people officer at Flipkart, Indus Khaitan, founder of Bitzer Mobile which was acquired by Oracle, and Krishna Mehra, co-founder of Capillary Technologies, also participated in the round.

  • Provata Health, an evidence-based worksite wellness, received $1.4 million in Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The funding will further the development and widespread dissemination of a state-of-the-art digital platform and wellness program to firefighters.

  • Genee, a scheduling system that instantly coordinates the right meeting times in the best interest of everyone, providing the productivity and efficiency of a personal assistant, today announced that the cloud-based Genee platform has entered public beta. In conjunction, Genee has closed a first round, receiving $1.45 million in funding from Uj Ventures, Streamline Ventures, Garnett Ventures and additional angel investors.

  • OneAssist Consumer Solutions, a company providing consumer-friendly assistance and protection programmes in India, has raised US$7.5 million in Series B round of funding, led by US-based Assurant, a provider of specialty protection products and services. The round also saw participation from existing investors Sequoia Capital and Lightspeed Venture Partners. OneAssist will use the funding to expand and deepen its distribution particularly in the online and digital areas as well as building category awareness for its existing and new products. It also plans to allocate significant investments to technology development.

  • Questback, Europe's supplier of solutions for Enterprise Feedback, Social CRM and online surveys, is raising capital from existing investors. The transaction will strengthen the equity base by approximately GBP £12 million (around $18.8 million). The largest investors are Reiten & Co Capital Partners VII L.P. and First Fellow Oy. Other existing investors are also offered to participate.
