February 5 2021 is an important day for everyone at Onsurity. It’s a date that we will celebrate with much pride as it marks our founding. On February 5, 2020, Yogesh Agarwal (our CEO), along with Kulin Shah (our COO) and a handful of other employees began working on the future of employee healthcare benefits.
In the year since, we’ve overcome a pandemic, remote working, an economic crisis and so much more to deliver affordable employee healthcare to thousands of employees all over India. What kept us going in these times was the fact that millions of struggling workers, employees, and businesspeople out there needed us to continue our work – so that they could have the healthcare they deserve.
Our first birthday is a testament to that fact. It stands as proof of our dedicated and hardworking team’s willingness to go above and beyond in these unprecedented times. In just a year, we’ve grown to 400+ customers and 40,000+ members. That’s no small feat, especially considering the “new normal” we are in. Our celebrations today are also for the employers who trusted us to provide employee healthcare plans for their valued staff.

We are proud to say, that today we have managed to make a significant impact in the lives of innumerable people, giving them access to affordable employee healthcare. It is truly humbling to see how through our product, employees have managed to consult doctors, saved on health check-ups, medicines and in many cases get hospitalized without worrying about accessibility, bills, and paperwork.
Here is a look back at how Onsurity weathered the storm to grow in 2020.
Onsurity in 2020
Starting With a Big Bang
Onsurity’s journey began in February 2020, when we were incorporated. Working out of our founder’s house, a few hardworking and driven team members put together the future of health benefits for start-ups and SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises).
Here is a look at our key milestones since then:
Despite the chaos of COVID-19, our team managed to develop such an impressive product, that not one, but two major brands recognized us. First, YourStory recognized Onsurity as a Tech30 Startup for 2020 at its TechSparks 2020 event.
As our first major award within a few months of our inception, the team was beyond elated to be recognized. This was a huge moment not just for Team Onsurity, but all our customers, members, and investors. It was proof that they had placed their faith in the right team.
The perfect way to mark Christmas came when we were also announced as winners at the India 500 Startup Awards 2020, leaders in the category of HealthTech, Healthcare, Employee Benefits and Fintech.
Happy and Healthy Customers are our Priority
Building a product when you never meet the customers or clients is a challenge, but that is where we excelled. Our team managed to onboard and provide critical support to our customers right from their homes.
In less than a year, Onsurity has onboarded 400+ customers from diverse industries. Here are just a few of the industries we have managed to revolutionise through our comprehensive healthcare benefits for employees:
Building a Team
Supporting and delivering health benefits for so many startups and SMEs would not be possible without a dedicated and passionate team. On February 10th, we opened our office in Bellandur, Bengaluru with big hopes and dreams like any other startup.
Unfortunately, the pandemic dictated otherwise. With just 15 employees we were forced to switch to remote working. Today, we have 70+ team members, a majority of whom were onboarded remotely. Working from their home offices all over the country, the team came together to help build something truly revolutionary.
Despite never having met each other, our team worked relentlessly at all odd hours to give our customers the support they need, whether be it purchasing our membership or helping a team member with hospitalization. That’s because we found innovative ways to stay connected and motivate each other during the pandemic.
From virtual town halls to guest speaker sessions to Secret Santa (thanks to Dunzo, Flipkart, Myntra, Amazon and others), we’ve done it all! Thanks to the pandemic, Onsurity has found some great ways to create an exciting company culture, even without going to a physical office.
Annual Day Celebrations
To celebrate this occasion, we made a little video. It’s just our way of thanking our customers, members and partners for helping us deliver and use comprehensive healthcare benefits for employees. Here’s a big thank you to everyone for supporting us!
Onsurity hopes to serve many more businesses and their employees and family members. We will continue to give more companies access to affordable employee healthcare. We believe healthcare benefits should be a basic right for all employees, whether full-time, part-time, freelance or contract.
That’s why we are working hard to create business health plans that are affordable and flexible for SMEs and startups. No matter what industry you are in, we are sure you will find Onsurity as an ideal healthcare partner.
