Digital Healthtech Startup Mfine, an on-demand doctor consultation and medicine ordering platform has laid off over 50% (around 500 employees) of its total workforce.
With this, the company joins several growth and late-stage companies such as Meesho, Vedantu and Unacademy, which had reduced workforce due to the slow funding environment.
In the past few weeks, around 3,000 contractual and full-time employees have been fired from these companies.
The slowdown in funding activities is affecting startups irrespective of their size, stage and valuation.
Many companies resort to layoffs to conserve resources, reduce burning, and prepare for a longer winter.
In September 2021, mFine had raised $48 million in its Series C funding round from Moore Strategic Ventures and Beenext. So far, the startup has raised around $75 million in three equity and debt rounds.
