Founder and Chairman
Rustom Kerawalla is counted among the top, pioneering entrepreneurs in India. His passionate advocacy for the cause of human development rests on the foundation of creating access to education, skill development, healthcare and livelihood opportunities for all. The ultimate vision which drives Kerawalla is to create solutions which are sustainable, scalable and which help India reap the benefits of its huge demographic dividend. As per Kerawalla, education and healthcare are two sectors, which are essential for the development of a nation. It is these sectors which ensure that the future generations are skilled, employable and healthy, and are thereby in a position to contribute towards the progress of the nation. As the Founder-Chairperson of the Ampersand Group, Rustom has put this thought into practice and emphatically worked towards reinventing elemental educational and healthcare ecosystems to enable national and intergenerational progress. Rustom’s journey began as an edupreneur, when he founded the first VIBGYOR school in Malad, Mumbai, in 2004. By 2006, this seed of a quality educational institution had grown into a professionally managed network of schools, which were collectively committed to following a holistic approach to learning, balancing arts, athletics and academics to enable overall development of students. With the birth of the Ampersand Group, Rustom’s vision of taking quality education and healthcare to individuals across socio-economic, geographic and gender barriers was realized. Under his leadership, the Ampersand Group has grown into a multi-faceted, end-to-end solution provider for education and healthcare sectors.
