LeapFrog Investments, Khosla Ventures, FinnFund, and Dutch investment firm Van Lanschot Kempen led a USD 30 million pre-series D funding round for health and fitness platform HealthifyMe.

Existing investors Unilever Ventures, Blume Ventures, Chiratae Ventures, and Healthquad joined the round as well. According to the startup, the investment includes a mix of equity and venture loans.
