India Angel Fund invests in its third woman led start-up G.O.D Café, an initiative by entrepreneur Sheetal Bhatt. With a vision of creating 1 Million entrepreneurs at the Grassroots level within next 3 years, Rahul Narvekar leads this round through India Angel Fund. He believes in creating value for start-ups with Mentorship + Money and is focused on supporting women entrepreneurs, who as per him prove to be more efficient leaders.
In this time of the panic, paranoia and uncertainty, there has been an observable shift in the mindset of the people steering them towards making healthy lifestyle changes and a sheer focus on immunity building through natural foods.
Speaking on this investment Rahul Narvekar, Co-founder IAF said “My vision is to continue to invest in women led startups like Sheetal’s. So far we have funded 3: Souniya Khurana, Sneh Kulkarni and Sheetal Bhatt. Our unique offering is access to mentors who actively work with our founders and also write cheques. Our Mantra is Mentorship + Money. India constitutes an extensive market for Ayurvedic Healthcare and Sheetal’s goal with G.O.D. Cafe was the most interesting vision I had come across lately. It’s time to reboot, reload and relaunch for the world to come post this pandemic.
