Alpha Coach raises $1.25 MN from Jani Ventures
Alpha Coach, an online technology and data driven, personal training program recently raised $1.25 mn from Jani Ventures INC and a clutch of investors, which include Dimitri Goulandris, based in the UK, and other Indian investors from friends and family, who are top professionals in the fields of investments, banking, law, and technology. Jani Ventures INC, the lead investor, typically invests early and does follow-on strategic capital investments in tech-driven companies. They have previously invested into multiple start-ups in India, including the video-sharing social networking service, Chingari (also backed by Salman Khan). Dimitri Goulandris, an eminent global investor, is the founder of The Cycladic Group, which he set up in 2002. Cycladic has invested in nearly 50 businesses in the US, Europe, India, Africa and Latin America.
Now valued at $5 mn, Alpha Coach will use the funds to continue building a strong team and launching and scaling up their fitness-tech platform to provide a refreshing, engaging and results-focused fitness experience for Indians.
