Physical therapy-focused software-as-a-service (SaaS) startup Spry has raised $7 Mn as part of its Series A funding round led by Eight Roads Ventures. The round also saw participation from other institutional investors such as F-Prime Capital and Together Fund.
The startup will use the fresh funds to accelerate building, what it calls, the future of practice management for physical rehabilitation. The investment will also be deployed to ramp up hiring across its engineering and go-to market verticals in India and the US.
“We look forward to working with our new investors, Eight Roads Ventures and F-Prime Capital, as we accelerate our mission to be the platform of choice for physical therapists globally,” Spry chief executive officer (CEO) Brijraj Bhuptani said.
Spry, founded in 2021 by former Ola chief technology officer (CTO) Bhuptani and Riyaz
Rehman, offers an omnichannel patient management platform for physical therapists. Its full-stack digital platform enables practitioners and owners of physical therapy centres to manage all their clinical and administrative functions using a single tool.

Prior to that, it also participated in a $40 Mn Series C fundraise of dental tech startup toothsi.
