"We are enthused to partner with JSB Healthcare. Sectoral tailwinds coupled with good margins and impressive average order value are all factors that indicate high growth potential for JSB Healthcare. We look forward to developing a long-standing relationship with them and financing their growth as they scale," said Abhiroop Medhekar, co-founder and CEO of Velocity.
