Sheroes Acquires Child Healthcare Startup Babygogo
Sheroes, the women’s-focused career platform, has acquired Delhi-based child healthcare startup Babygogo. The nature and value of the acquisition were not disclosed by the companies. The founders of Babygogo will join Sheroes as co-founders.
This is the second acquisition in less than five months by Delhi-based Sheroes. In August this year, Sheroes had acquired Bangalore-based online career restart platform Women Restart for an undisclosed amount.
Operated by AddoDoc Technologies Pvt. Ltd, Babygogo was founded in 2014 by Siddhartha Ahluwalia, Sowrabh N R S and Satyadeep Karnati. The firm started as a technology platform to hand-hold 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. Parents can also track their child’s growth, get vaccination reminders and save health records on the Babygogo platform.”
Siddhartha Ahluwalia said “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. Through this acquisition, Babygogo community members can benefit from the strong ecosystem of Sheroes, as well as through their relationships and existing women’s communities.
Garg is also an investor in Sheroes and he said “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”.
Sairee Chahal, founder and chief executive of Sheroes said “We have partnered with Babygogo earlier on various projects. The Internet needs to offer more high trust and high empathy spaces for women. As we scale, this is a natural alignment of vision and ambition. “
