Gaurav Burman Joins Mental Healthcare Startup Mitsu as Investor and Board Member

According to some recent reports, it has been announced that Gaurav Burba, who is also the Director of Dabur International and the scion of the Burman family, was able to secure an ownership stake of 7.5% in Mitsu, a mental health startup. Not only that, he has also assumed the role of a key figure on the company’s board of directors.

It can be said that the recent developments are on the heels of a new launch at Mitsu, which is supposedly a groundbreaking self-therapy program that can address issues associated with anxiety and depression. 

While talking about the new program, Gaurav mentioned that it is focused on a science-based approach. On top of that, Mitsu has made it affordable so that it stays accessible for everyone who is battling with mental health conditions.

Mitsu’s pioneering 8-week program offers users the opportunity to acquire evidence-based skills, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness techniques, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). These techniques have been proven to significantly enhance emotional well-being.

Amit Singh, the visionary founder behind Mitsu, has expressed immense enthusiasm about Gaurav Burman’s involvement, highlighting its potential to make a profound impact on a wide demographic of individuals seeking mental health support.

Mitsu’s impressive roster of investors also includes renowned angel investors like Shivashish Chatterjee, Yuvraj Singh, and Harpreet Singh Grover. The company’s primary focus revolves around affordability and accessibility, with a particular emphasis on catering to the needs of students. 

Moreover, Mitsu offers in-app chat support, connecting users with qualified therapists, further enhancing its commitment to making mental healthcare readily available to all.

Mitsu unveiled its app in May 2023 and has made significant strides in the mobile market, securing a presence on both iOS and Android platforms. Founded by Amit Singh, the former CEO of 3M India Ltd, the startup has attracted substantial support from industry stalwarts, including Shivashish Chatterjee and Yuvraj Singh, the masterminds behind DMI Finance, and Harpreet Singh Grover, recognized for his role in founding and exiting CoCubes.com.

Amit Singh’s previous affiliation with Burman Hospitality, where he held a board position, suggests a partnership rooted in mutual respect and a shared vision. Singh’s brainchild, Mitsu, focuses on delivering effective mental healthcare through innovative self-therapy techniques.

For Gaurav Burman, Director of Dabur International and part of the Burman family, this investment in Mitsu goes beyond mere business strategy. It signifies his forward-thinking approach in recognizing the potential of startups that are pioneering the future of healthcare with innovative approaches. Notably, Burman Hospitality, under his leadership, oversees the operations of the popular fast-food chain Taco Bell in India, indicating his involvement in ventures that shape the landscape of the healthcare industry.
