YourPhysio, a physiotherapy and pain relief platform, has raised $350,000 (around Rs 2.55 crore) in a pre-seed funding round led by early-stage firm Better Capital.
Other participants in this exercise include Titan Capital, the venture firm set up by Snapdeal founders Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal, and angel investors Sarath Sura, Venu Palaparthi, and VP Rajesh.
YourPhysio, operated by Epione Healthcare Pvt Ltd, was founded in March last year by Ashutosh Mundhada and Sheetal Mundhada, both of whom are alumni of BITS Pilani. Apart from providing online physiotherapy services, it also allows other physiotherapists to sign on to its platform.
The company will use the capital it has raised to acquire talent for its engineering and customer experience teams.
Edtech startup Little Leap has raised an undisclosed amount in its seed round of funding from ah! Ventures, a Mumbai-based investment manager and platform.
Little Leap operates a mobile app that offers age-appropriate personalised content to help children learn soft skills, life skills and leadership skills.
The company will utilise the capital for hiring more professionals, including child experts. The startup also aims to raise another round of funding in 4-6 months.
“We believe non-academic skills are equally important for shaping children’s personalities, which shall help them evolve into successful individuals and better human beings,” said Amit Kumar, partner, ah! Ventures.
The startup was launched in June last year by Vishal Gupta, an alumnus of Delhi College of Engineering who has worked with organisations such as MakeMyTrip and ITC Infotech.
The platform offers byte-sized content in gamified group sessions.
ah! Ventures claims it has over 2,000 seed and angel investors, and more than 1,000 venture capital and institutional investors registered with it. Investments across both platforms have touched nearly Rs 170 crore.
