Newmi, a couplepreneur startup Co-founded by Sanchit Agarwal and Aditi Mittal, is 8-9 months old. Sanchit has a vast experience of 20+ years in the corporate world while Aditi is an ex-Fashion Designer.
It was during the time when Sanchit met with an accident, he promised himself that if he gets a chance, will do something more impactful in life. This incident along with seeing the health journey of his wife Aditi, who is a two-time cancer conqueror, triggered him to think about Why we don’t prioritize women’s health, which actually needs very serious consideration. Thus, with this inspiration, Newmi was born to prioritize women’s health life cycle.

Education and awareness are big challenges in this industry. But now there are new startups or companies coming up that are trying to solve these unaddressed issues, a slight progress is clearly noticeable. Although a lot more is to be done. The ecosystem is getting built.
Women health challenges
On being asked about the health challenges of women, Sanchit informs, “We are building programs to help folks normalize the LGBTQ word. We are big supporters of mental healthcare. We are doing sessions through social media, writing specific content to educate and create awareness regarding mental health issues.”
