StartupTalky: Jaideep, what service does BramhAnsh Technologies provide? What was the motivation/vision with which BramhAnsh Technologies started?

Jaideep Tiwari: BramhAnsh Technologies Private Limited stands as a trailblazing MedTech company committed to transforming the landscape of healthcare by offering cutting-edge medical devices tailored to address a spectrum of conditions such as headaches, anxiety, insomnia, migraines, and more. Our firm is deeply devoted to a mission that seeks to reshape healthcare through the introduction of innovative, clinical-grade wearable medical technologies, with the ultimate goal of enhancing patient outcomes and raising the quality of life globally.

The spark for our journey ignited in 2015 when I, Jaideep Tiwari, the Founder and CEO of BramhAnsh Technologies, personally confronted an anxiety disorder and recognized the pressing need for effective treatment. Rather than succumbing to this challenge I and my colleague K. Kartik, Co-founder and COO of BramhAnsh Technologies, decided to harness the potential of technology to address mental health issues. Drawing upon a history of collaboration and shared interests dating back to our college days, we embarked on a mission to establish a company that would utilize technology to provide relief for a diverse range of disorders. Hailing from a small town in Chhattisgarh, we, as emerging young entrepreneurs, carried a bold vision.

Our official journey commenced in 2017 when we initiated extensive research into the development of a technology utilizing sound waves as a method of stimulation to calm the nervous system. After countless hours of research, unwavering dedication, and hard work, we successfully created this groundbreaking technology. In 2020, we proudly secured a patent for our innovation, aptly named "MIGRAELIEF."

StartupTalky: What new features have been added in the past year? What is/are the USP/s of BramhAnsh Technologies?

Jaideep Tiwari: In 2023, the company commenced clinical trials, conducted comprehensive market research, and successfully launched the first flagship product into the market.

Jaideep Tiwari:  For a Company’s growth and performance monitoring key metrics is fundamental. Several key performance indicators (KPIs) are pivotal in this regard. Financial metrics, including revenue growth, profit margins, and cash flow, provide a comprehensive overview of our financial health. Customer acquisition cost (CAC) and customer lifetime value (CLV) help assess the efficiency and sustainability of our customer acquisition strategies. We closely track customer satisfaction scores and Net Promoter Score (NPS) to gauge the quality of our products and services from the customer's perspective.

Operational metrics, such as production efficiency, inventory turnover, and fulfillment speed, provide insights into the efficacy of our internal processes. Employee satisfaction and retention rates are monitored to ensure a motivated and stable workforce. Additionally, we analyze market share and competitive benchmarks to understand our positioning within the industry. These metrics serve as a compass for identifying areas of improvement. Regular reviews of these indicators allow us to pinpoint operational inefficiencies, customer pain points, or market gaps. Through a data-driven approach, we derive actionable insights that guide strategic decisions.

For instance, if customer feedback indicates a need for product enhancements, we allocate resources to research and development accordingly. Likewise, if financial metrics indicate a particular product line's success, we may consider expanding it or exploring similar market opportunities.

In essence, these metrics act as a diagnostic tool, enabling us to diagnose challenges, capitalize on strengths, and make informed decisions that steer the company toward sustained growth. It's a dynamic process that ensures we stay agile and responsive in a competitive business landscape.

StartupTalky: What were the most significant challenges BramhAnsh Technologies faced in the past year and how did you overcome them?

Jaideep Tiwari: Developing products like Migraelief presented significant challenges for a startup company like ours. One major obstacle was establishing a reliable network of fabrication vendors and suppliers. Many vendors demanded large quantity orders, making it financially daunting for a research-focused company like ours to invest heavily in sample pieces.

Additionally, extensive education and awareness efforts were required to overcome the established reliance on pharmaceuticals for migraine treatment. Building a comprehensive understanding of the effectiveness of Neuromodulation devices among potential users became a crucial task.

To overcome these challenges, the company worked diligently to identify vendors willing to accommodate smaller production quantities while remaining cost-effective. Through innovative, pragmatic, and frugal approaches, we successfully navigated these hurdles, leading to the successful development and introduction of innovative products like Migraelief. This product is clinically proven, doctor-recommended, and adheres to all safety parameters.
