Fittr, a Pune, India-based health and fitness community platform, raised $11.5M in a Series A funding round.
The round was co-led by Dream Capital, the Corporate Venture Capital and M&A arm of Dream Sports and Elysian Park Ventures, the private investment arm of the LA Dodgers ownership group. Existing investor Sequoia Capital’s India Surge also participated in the funding round.
The new capital will enable the company to accelerate its growth & expansion into new markets, including North America, the UK and Singapore, which currently accounts for 30% of the company’s overall revenue, while continuing to educate the Indian population around health & fitness.
Led by Jitendra Chouksey, CEO and Founder, Fittr began as a small WhatsApp group and has grown into an engaged and informative fitness community offering physical, mental and emotional well-being solutions built around awarness and education. It is available on Android and iOS.
Co-founders are Sonal Singh, who previously worked as a strategy and operations consultant with Deloitte London, Jyoti Dabas, a former Citigroup analyst, Rohit Chattopadhyay, who comes in with a diverse Sales & Marketing experience across Banking & various other sectors, and Bala Krishna Reddy, a former developer at Ford Motors.
