Healthcare startup Janani.life has raised $2.2 million in growth capital from a group of investors including Y Combinator (YC), Olive Tree Capital, and Good Water Capital.
Soma Capital, Brightlane VC, NB Ventures along with some prominent angel investors like D S Brar, Chairman GVK life science and former President of Ranbaxy, and Avendus Capital’s founder Gaurav Deepak, also backed Janani.
Last year, Janani raised a seed round of around $1.5 million in a round led by Venture Catalysts, Inflection Point Ventures, and Apollo Hospitals.
Janani would utilize the funds to build its technology stack, initiate full-fledged operations across major cities in the country and ramp up its brand building and marketing activities, it said in a press release.
Founded in October 2020 by Nilay Mehrotra and Raj Garg, Janani helps people suffering from lifestyle disorders find discrete and convenient solutions at home. It offers teleconsultations, at-home diagnostics, and nutraceuticals along with specially curated programs for different lifestyle related health issues. The startup has an end-to-end solution for sperm health, female fertility, pcod/pcos, irregular periods, period pain, and low libido and ED for men.
Janani.life is part of YC’s current Winter batch (W22) and is a part of the cohort that will be presenting in the accelerator’s upcoming demo day on March 29 and 30.
