Startup Street: Clensta's waterless hygiene products and philanthropy trends in India

Updated : October 06, 2020 11:07 PM IST

With the world grappling with coronavirus, the need for products that ensure perfect hygiene is critical. Founded in 2016, Clensta claims to provide innovative solutions for day-to-day health and hygiene-related problems by reducing the dependence on water.

The startup claims that over 500 hospitals have adopted Clensta's solutions and its products are also mandated by the Indian defence to be used by soldiers in Siachen, Ladakh, and other remote places. The venture also claims to have developed a lotion to combat coronavirus. To know more about Clensta's waterless technology solutions, its founder and CEO, Puneet Gupta is in conversation with CNBC-TV18.

Founded by Nitin Gupta, the Uni team claims that the credit card market in India today is still under-penetrated as compared to digital payments. With just 34 million credit card users having 58 million credit cards as opposed to more than 100 million Indians today who pay digitally and electronically, this startup is focused on filling this gap. Nitin Gupta is in conversation with Megha Vishwanath.
