“Indian women are ready for a modern, high-quality healthcare experience. PCOS is a massive need—it’s a lifelong condition that seriously impacts quality of life for millions of women around the world. Our vision is to start with PCOS and continue to expand to more women’s health conditions,” CEO Shashwata Narain said. “Being part of the target market ourselves, we understand the issues better than anyone else and are excited to build something that we can ourselves use in our lifetime.”

Veera Health offers a subscription-based programme that provides a customised treatment plan, administered by a team of doctors specialising in PCOS including gynecologists, nutritionists, dermatologists and mental health experts.

The company is part of the fifth cohort of Surge, which is Sequoia Capital India’s scale-up programme for startups in India and Southeast Asia.
