Former Flipkart executives Ankit Nagori and Mukesh Bhansal have created a health and fitness related startup, Curefit which are ready to make two acquisitions this year and ready to launch a fitness application.
Curefit has already brought a fitness brand Cult in for $3 Million in August 2016. Now, the company is all set to invest in another fitness center in Bangalore. The company is also planning to build a Serenity Mental Healthcare which will provide services to the people who are mentally ill.
CureFit is an innovative combination of engagement, coaching, and delivery through a combination of online and offline channels. Both experiences, seamlessly integrated will provide end-to-end proactive health management to consumers.
Founded in July 2016 by Mukesh Bhansal and Ankit Nagori the healthcare startup raised series A funding of $15 million from Accel Partners, IDG Ventures, and Kalaari Capital. The three VCs had invested in, and have received attractive returns.
The application will be on air from mid-year by which the users can get services regarding health, mental health, health food, fitness routines and proper diet including health checkup services.
Mr. Nagori, the CEO of Curefit says “Healthcare can be broadly divided into prevention and cure. For the first few years we will be focusing on the prevention part of healthcare, and later we’ll pursue the cure side. Prevention has four important parts: eating healthy, active lifestyle, mental wellness, and regular health check-ups. We will be launching fitness, mental wellness—DIY (do-it-yourself) packs of yoga and meditation—and food when we launch our app within the next three months.”
CureFit has expanded its team to 45 employees which is quite a big number for early stage startup.
