The Inception

When Yogesh Agarwal and Kulin Shah founded Onsurity in mid-2020 they brought with them a wealth of knowledge and experience in insurance underwriting and distribution as well as customer experience and building scalable tech-enabled businesses to the table.

Yogesh has been working and assisting his family's MSME business since he was a child. There, he recalls, none of the workers ever had any healthcare benefits, not due to a lack of intention, but due to a lack of a good and affordable product.

As a result, in the event of a medical emergency, the only support available was salary advances, which were extremely difficult to recover due to the nature of salaries and attrition.

When he left his multinational job to start his own Actuarial and Employee Benefits Consulting firm with a team of ten people, he ran into the same problem the second time.

Despite having held top management and CXO positions in multiple insurance companies, he was unable to find an affordable comprehensive health plan that was not capital intensive and matched the large corporate benefits in every way.

This became a serious problem as his employees saw a lack of employee benefits as a barrier to joining his consulting firm. He was inspired to create a platform that could serve various Employee Benefits as an Employee Benefit and Insurance Expert.

Kulin has previously worked with a number of well-known startups, where he developed digital payment and insurance technology solutions for large corporations. He does, however, have a strong desire to develop technology and solutions for startups, SMEs, and emerging businesses. As a result, when Yogesh mentioned his idea for an employee benefits platform, Kulin agreed to join him in March 2020 to build Onsurity, an SME Employee Benefits platform.

Yogesh Agarwal, founder & CEO of Onsurity

Kulin Shah, Onsurity’s co-founder, said, “Our experience has taught us that small businesses and start-ups struggle to find the right employee healthcare plan, and the process is time-consuming and expensive.
