Binny Bansal, others invest $6 mn in Mindhouse
Blacktail Mindhouse Pvt. Ltd, which operates health-technology company Mindhouse, on Friday said it has raised $6 million in a seed funding led by Flipkart’s co-founder Binny Bansal.

Founded in 2019, the company primarily focused on mental wellness, but eventually pivoted to a broader coverage area of curative wellness. It plans to rebrand in the near future in a bid to reflect these changes. Khanna had earlier worked with food delivery company Zomato, co-founded by Chaddah.
“Patients suffering from any long-drawn health condition, including pregnancy, always require a change in lifestyle in addition to clinical care," said Khanna, co-founder, Mindhouse. “Sixty percent of the consumer spends in the $4.5 trillion wellness industry go into curative wellness; this provides a great opportunity to build an impact-oriented business," she said.
Bansal added: “I have loved the approach Mindhouse has taken towards wellness and strongly believe in the experience Pooja and Pankaj carry. I’m very excited to be a part of this."
