- The start-up has improved accessibility for persons with impairments in more than 300 locations during the last three years.
What the founder says: Khandelwal spoke about his experience, saying that he was using a wheelchair after becoming paralysed and was restricted to his home. He decided to launch RampMyCity in order to assist other disabled persons as a result.
