Healthcare firm has raised $2.2 million in growth capital from a group of investors including the global accelerator 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.

The company said it helps people suffering from lifestyle disorders find discrete and convenient solutions at home and 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.

At Janani, we get to the root cause of the problem through our proprietary diagnostic and treatment plans created with the help of expert doctors, and this round funding validates the market’s need for an innovative product,” Nilay Mehrotra, co-founder of Janani said.
