Gynoveda founder and CEO, Vishal Gupta said the company has tripled its revenue year-on-year between FY20 and FY23 to reach 100 crore annual revenue run rate within three years of its inception.

India Alternatives Private Equity Fund, Founder, Managing Director, and CEO Shivani Bhasin Sachdeva said, "This investment fits perfectly with our investment themes of women and health."

Sachdeva further said, "Women's health globally is an underserved market. We are proud to back a company that uses an age-old science like Ayurveda in a new format to provide solutions for this large addressable market."

With the help of this funding, the company aims to raise awareness about the importance of menstrual health on a grassroot level, making Ayurveda the first choice for women’s healthcare.
