About Nesta

Nesta is an innovation foundation. For us, innovation means turning bold ideas into reality and changing lives for the better. We use our expertise, skills and funding in areas where there are big challenges facing society.

Patients going to a private hospital are charged the full amount, patients going to a government/municipal hospital are charged a subsidised rate and free services are provided to accident victims, unaccompanied unconscious individuals and victims of mass casualty incidents.

A hawk like focus on efficiency keeps the model financially viable. In 2007, the company had 10 ambulances in Mumbai[1]; now it has close to 100.
