Elda Health, a health platform for the mid-age urban woman, has raised $1.5 million in a seed round from Avaana Capital, Orios Ventures and Ananth Narayanan Family office. 

The new round of funding will be used to scale its offerings and operation, hire new talent, and onboard health professionals and doctors.

The firm has a panel that includes veteran medical practitioners across mental wellness, gynaecology, dermatology, orthopedics, chronic pain, among others. 

“Women's health has been underserved for generations. While puberty and pregnancy are celebrated and tended to, pivotal phases of women's lives such as menopause (that last 10 - 30 years) are completely ignored,” said Swathi Kulkarni, co-founder, and CEO of Elda Health. 


Sporjo, a sports-focused edtech startup, has raised $2 million in a pre-Series A round led by Punit Balan, chairman, Punit Balan Group and Punit Balan Studios.

The round also saw participation from other investors.

Founded by G. Srinivvasan in 2020, Sporjo offers a trademarked assessment tool that allows for participants to get a roadmap based on their skill set and personality, as well as education and training modules led by industry experts.   

“Challenges exist for both candidates and employers. A lack of credible sources, information, and knowledge is a major hurdle for the candidates. Skill gaps, understanding of the business of sports and incredible lead times to find the right person ail the employers,” said Srinivvasan.
