SHEROES, the women’s focused career platform has announced its second acquisition within less than five months. The company today said, it has acquired Delhi-based child healthcare startup Babygogo. However, the nature and value of the acquisition were not disclosed by both the companies.
Sairee Chahal, founder-CEO of SHEROES, said, “SHEROES has always been a place for constructive, safe, positive support to its members. The SHEROES platform is a trustworthy point of reference for women around their own growth journeys. As our own community grows, SHEROES will continue to offer lifetime value to its members via deepening its presence in all aspects of a woman’s growth story.
In August this year, the company had acquired Bangalore-based online career restart platform Women Restart for an undisclosed amount.
Operated by AddoDoc Technologies Pvt. Ltd, Babygogo was founded by Siddhartha Ahluwalia, Sowrabh N R S and Satyadeep Karnati in 2014. Babygogo’s journey began with the intention to leverage technology to handhold parents, particularly mothers, by offering baby care advice. The platform enables mothers to read helpful articles on baby food, health and day-to-day care. They can post queries, and doctors and experienced mothers respond in minutes. Moms can also track their child’s growth, get vaccination reminders and save health records.
In March 2016, Babygogo had raised Rs 2 crore in a seed funding round led by angel investor Rajul Garg and a number of healthcare executives.
“Over a period of time we have found that the queries of mothers go beyond the realm of baby care, and they also post queries and have conversations around careers, mental health and personal care. This is an indicator that our community does seek support around aspects that go beyond their identity as mothers. Through this acquisition, Babygogo community members can benefit from the strong ecosystem legacy of SHEROES, as well as through their relationships and existing women’s communities,” observes Siddhartha Ahluwalia, cofounder of Babygogo.
Rajul Garg an investor in Babygogo says, “I have closely followed the two platforms and have found common ground to create a large, scalable business. Both the teams have highly complementary skills and an ability to execute. I am particularly excited about this opportunity. “
On the other side, SHEROES aims to emerge as the world’s most transformative women’s product, with a vision to touch the lives of 100 million women in the next five years.
