Tushar Vashisht

Health Entrepreneur

In 2011 Tushar and a friend conducted a lifestyle experiment in which they lived at the government-stipulated poverty line of Rs 32/day. The experiment and its documentation gave scientific voice to the poor, creating empathy amongst India’s privileged, and providing concrete policy solutions to the government. This inspired him to co-found HealthifyMe, the world’s first Indian nutrition and calorie tracker for healthy living. Prior to this, Tushar worked as a banker, and then helped initiate the Indian Government’s Unique ID project.
