Tushar Vashisht has been having trouble keeping himself fit. Overweight for his 32 years, the chief executive of HealthifyMe found his girth increasing as his fitness app company grew 20-fold in the last two years. Vashisht works out of a building that’s right in the middle of lip-smackingly famous eating joints of Indiranagar in east Bengaluru.
But it wasn’t the binge that added extra kilos to the otherwise lean entrepreneur. It was pulling HealthifyMe from the brink of bankruptcy three years ago. Today, the five-year-old company has over two million app downloads, according to Appbot.
