Healthcare startup CureFit has hired Flipkart’s former vice president of supply chain operations, Neeraj Aggarwal for its food and operations team called EatFit. This was first reported by ETtech. Prior to joining CureFit and after quitting Flipkart, Aggarwal served in the vice president (not clear of which department) role at Ola for two months (April 2017 and May 2017), as indicated by his LinkedIn profile.
Aggarwal was with Flipkart for over 4 years in the logistics division. Before that, he had headed sales and operations at Maxrange Retail Pvt. Ltd. and was with Capgemini for a number of years.
Previously, CureFit had hired former Flipkart engineering manager Kunal Chourasia in April 2016, former WalmartLabs and Google engineer Ankit Gupta in September 2016, and InMobi’s former director of big data platforms Debabrata Bagchi in November 2016.
Bangalore-based CureFit, which was founded by former Myntra and Flipkart executives Mukesh Bansal and Ankit Nagori, had raised $15 million from Accel Partners, IDG Ventures and Kalaari Capital, in July last year. Over the next seven months or so, CureFit invested $3 million in Bangalore-based fitness company Cult for a majority stake (in August 2016) and acquired a majority stake in Tribe Fitness Club for an undisclosed amount (in February 2017).
CureFit offers three distinct services: eat.fit, cult.fit and mind.fit.
eat.fit: Users can book subscription for healthy meals. It’s not clear if the meals are prepared in-house or not. Currently, the meals are available only in select areas in Bangalore – HSR Layout and Koramangala. But the recruitment of Aggarwal indicates that they might soon be expanding deliveries to other areas in the city.
cult.fit: Users can watch DIY workout videos and exercise at home. Bangalore-based users also have the option of booking workout sessions or signup for membership packages at Cult centres.
mind.fit: Provides meditation audios to relieve stress and anxiety.
