HealthQuad, Unilever Ventures, and Elm (Saudi Arabia PIF entity) also participated in the round, along with existing investors Chiratae Ventures, Inventus Capital, and Sistema Asia Capital.

HealthifyMe said it has doubled its user base and revenue in the last year during the pandemic.

It crossed 25 million downloads recently and is on track to hit $50 million ARR (annual recurring revenue) within the next six months, potentially becoming the largest health and fitness app outside the US and China.

While HealthifyMe’s base has been India, it has been expanding internationally and now nearly 25 percent of its revenues come from outside the country like Malaysia and Singapore.

“What they have achieved in India with their AI coaching solution at scale is truly pioneering for the world. We are excited about the potential as they scale globally – specifically in North America, where 2 out 3 adults are overweight or obese,” said Vinod Khosla, Founding Partner at Khosla Ventures.

HealthifyMe is also planning to invest in building its leadership team and will hire for key positions across operations, HR, technology, and marketing as well as P&L heads.

The company aims to hire over 1,000 trainers and coaches this year.
