Kunal Kapoor who has recently been in the news for his body transformation, seems to have set his sights in transforming a completely different space, the social sector. The actor is the co founder of one of Asia’s largest crowdfunding platforms, Ketto. The tech platform has raised money for everything from disaster relief to fighting diseases and even helping athletes raise money to compete in International events. Last year the tech start up won the Wharton India start up competition and now the platform has been recognised by none other than the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.
On April 5-6, 2017, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is organising the Greater Giving Summit in Seattle, Washington and Kunal’s platform has been invited for the event. A one hundred and fifty thought leaders, innovators and influencers from across the world have been invited to be part of the summit in Seattle.
Kunal will be heading to Seattle to participate in the summit, and had this to say
“We are truly honoured to be invited to this summit. When we started off a couple of years back, we never imagined we would be on the radar of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation” Kunal further adds “We are a team of young people that have come together at Ketto with a dream of making a positive impact on the world around us. This is a validation of our efforts.”
