This is Artha Venture Fund (AVF) 12th investment from its recently closed ₹225 crores micro-VC fund.

Speaking on the fundraise, Nitin Verma, Founder & CEO of InstaAstro, said, “After the lockdown, there was a clear ask for professional astrology wellness services that would help consumers deal with the ‘need to solve problems, that promotes mindfulness – an integral part of the mental continuum. Although astrology and other spiritual practices are an integral part of the millennial culture, the fragmented nature with the lack of a standardized process was making it challenging for the consumers to get reliable service that ensured confidentiality.” 

Commenting on the investment in InstaAstro, Anirudh A Damani, Managing Partner of Artha Venture Fund, said, “In a time where consumers are seeking out local spiritual support to resolve their pain points, it was difficult to find a professional solution in an already fragmented market – due to concerns such as authenticity, result-oriented approach, and privacy.

“We were impressed by the team at InstaAstro and how they have leveraged new-age technology to help consumers resolve their real-life problems in a structured manner. Moreover, with their growing roster, the platform could cater to high volumes of queries across the country/globe and use technology to create personalized, engaging experiences and measure outcomes,” he added.
