Comments of the investors
Speaking about the potential of ayurvedic medicines, Paul Santos, Managing Partner, Wavemaker Partners, said, “Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India. Ayurveda has provided relief and treatment for chronic conditions for thousands of years. However, it is plagued by non-standardized doctors and medicines”.
And speaking about the work of the startup he added, “NirogStreet has been doing some groundbreaking work in mainstreaming Ayurveda discipline not just in India but across the globe by strengthening the trustworthy Ayurveda practitioner fraternity in India and nurturing the sustainable healthcare ecosystem by capacity and knowledge building.
