Facebook Selects App Healofy For Its Fbstart Program

Now more wide community for newborn parents!

Healofy – Smart Pregnancy & Baby Care App

Healofy app, launched in May has now been selected by Facebook for their FbStart, mobile-focused startup program launched last year by the social network company. With the help of this program, Healofy will now receive $40,000 credits worth and services from Facebook and its partners that include UserTesting, Dropbox, and MailChimp. The app was selected because ‘it’s impressive development so far and it’s potential for continued growth.’ Moreover, Healofy will also have an opportunity to connect directly to the Facebook team and global startups community.

What does Healofy do?

Soon after its launch, Healofy has strived to build an excellent community for new parents and expectant covering various healthy tips and experiences. It starts from doubts, giving daily healthy tips for newborn baby or even a sharing memorable moment. This app revolves around health and lifestyle from user-generated content. As of now, the app has around 4000 users. On average time spent on Healofy, their daily active users are around 500+ and are growing 22% per week.

About the company

Gaurav Aggarwal who joined GoZoomo after graduating from IIT-Guwahati 2015 joined with his school friend, Shubham Maheshwari, a former Flipkart employee to create this interactive app, Healofy. The duo realized that expectant moms needed something more than e-learning like real personal experiences so they created this peer-to-peer app for moms and moms to be. Healofy is also in talk to raise its angel funding round and how to utilize its funds for building and expanding their team and product. The apps key competitors are Babygogo, Babyberry but it is also far different from them as the Healofy aims at creating community and just not share content.
