The cricketer has joined Fullife Healthcare’s ranks as an investor for an undisclosed amount.
Fullife Healthcare Pvt. Ltd, which owns the sports nutrition brand Fast&Up, said on Thursday that it had received an unknown sum of money from cricketer Mayank Agarwal.
He went on to say that Fast&Up will elevate the brand to the top of the list for many athletes in India and around the world.

Fullife is the parent business of Aeronutrix Sports Products Private Limited, which introduced their flagship brand ‘Fast&Up’ to India as part of their active lifestyle division.
“Having worked closely with the team at Fast&Up for a number of years, they have showed a nuanced understanding of how to elevate an athlete’s fitness in order to achieve peak performance,” said Agarwal.
“We are invigorated by the commitment Mayank has brought into the project, and are keen to work closely with him and further use his insights in developing our range of sports nutrition products for high-performing athletes,” said Venugopal.
Fast&Up stated it had received funding from a number of well-known investors, including Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, Sixth Sense Ventures, and Kotak Securities.
In December of last year, the firm received money from actor Varun Dhawan. In the same month, it secured $22 million (about Rs 168 crore) in a Series C financing from Morgan Stanley Private Equity Asia.
