LoveCycles launches in India and raises $750K from Prime Venture Partners!
On International Women’s Day we at Prime Venture Partners announced our first investment in the healthcare sector, LoveCycles. Congratulations to John Paul and team!
The product LoveCycles is an app that helps women manage and track their menstrual and ovulation cycles and is developed by a small company in Bangalore led by John Paul, a young entrepreneur. The app which has more than 6Million downloads and 1.2M+ active users around the world is now also available in Hindi with more local languages to follow soon.
We’re truly excited about this company — and been overwhelmed by the amazing response from the media.
My partner Amit Somani has written a great blog on why we invested in the company — its a great read if you want to get inside the mind of an early-stage VC and what we look for.
We’re thankful to the media for the great coverage the launch of LoveCycles & the news of our investment has garnered. Below are some links from select stories in the media — in no particular order.
