The subscription-based platform focuses on improving cardiovascular health thereby bringing an overall improvement in the health and fitness of individuals. The platform uses fitness, nutrition, and education as an integrated approach to achieve this. fitpage will target to raise a larger amount of funding in late 2022 for accelerating growth and acquiring complementary businesses in the related field.
This investment came from Gaurav Jaitly – MD and head of equity, Goldman Sachs India and Maj. Manoj Verma, MD of Jaguar Security.
