Building the foundation for tomorrow and leaving a legacy of kindness for the generations to come stands Khushboo Jain, marking the beginning of change with ImpactGuru – India’s leading crowdfunding platform helping people get through rough rock-bottoms.
A strong passion to make a difference and to save more lives of people inspired Khushboo and her husband Piyush Jain to start a fintech company in 2015, focused on making healthcare more affordable accessible and hassle free in India.

Commenting on the rising concern and her endeavours to eradicate it, Khushboo says, “India has one of the highest out-of-pocket expenses for healthcare in the world - three times higher than the global average. Furthermore, 65% to 70% of the middle-class population in India does not have healthcare insurance. While the remaining 30-35% are underinsured. Hence, we believe that there’s a need for alternative healthcare financing solutions. I am driven by the passion to make healthcare accessible and affordable for all in India."
