Ketto is an online crowdfunding space for social causes and is based in Mumbai, India. Kunal Kapoor the Co-Founder of Ketto along with Varun Sheth took the initiative to make people aware about a concept like this. It is a platform where you can start offering with as less as Rs 100. Kunal with the help of his friends and his agency Kwan Foundation looks to bring individuals and corporates from all fields together to support their favorite causes and add ‘fun’ in fundraising.
