Founded in 2021 by Surbhi Jain, Neend aims to help individuals cope up with all sleep related problems, and provides an immersive experience with its relaxing bedtime stories, soothing sleep sounds, and ambiences.
In the past few months, the Bengaluru-based startup claims to have seen tremendous growth across platforms. Their youtube channel has more than 6.5 million views, with a subscriber base of 75,000 in just a couple of months.
The Neend app currently has over 50K downloads (most of these coming organically), with individuals suffering with severe insomnia issues recovering significantly and getting rid of their medication.
