“Since inception, Oasis’ key focus has been to establish a center of excellence with transparent, ethical, and evidence-based practice to treat infertility. India Life Sciences Fund backing us is further testimony to the quality of service we provide at Oasis. The investment would be used for starting 20 more centers in the next five years, with the primary focus on expansion in South India,” Kiran Gadela, co-founder and managing director at Oasis.

The IVF market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 10.1 percent in the next five years to reach a little over Rs 5,000 crore by 2021, with infertility being a huge unmet need, according to Anula K Jayasuriya, managing director, InvAscent, the investment advisor to EILSF (Evolvence India Life Sciences fund) and India Life Sciences Fund II. Jayasuriya has joined the board of Oasis.


“Oasis, which has a strong focus on research, will also create extensive training programs in both clinical and embryology services. We have developed world-class systems, processes, and protocols, and our multi-disciplinary teams work diligently to implement them. This is reflected in our excellent results,” said Oasis cofounder Durga G Rao.
