Bangalore and San Francisco based online heath and wellness startup CureJoy has secured $1.15 million (7.6 crore Rupee) in Pre-Series A funding led by Accel Partners. The company is headquartered in California and most of its operations are managed from Bengaluru.
The Bengaluru and San Francisco based company will use the funds to expand the company’s services in India as well as other locations and strengthen its team.
Founded in October 2013 by entrepreneurs Dikshant Dave and Shrinivasa Sharma, CureJoy is an online destination for natural health and wellness where people can find fresh and credible content, answers to some of the most common health questions and health advice from experts. The platform provides curated content through its backend algorithms and technology on natural health and wellness by experts usually associated with large universities like Stanford or UCLA, and merges it with global trends and patterns.
CureJoy has about 8 million site visits per month. The company has witnessed a quarter-on-quarter growth of about 100% over the last six quarters. It has received two rounds of investments by Accel Partners and independent angels based out of US and India. Last week, Accel India participated in a Series C round of funding at Silicon Valley-based big data startup Paxata.
