Kishore Kumar,

Chairman

Dr. R. Kishore Kumar founded Cloudnine in 2007 to realize his vision of high quality healthcare in India,
on par with international standards. He saw a lot of deaths during his training in India, but hardly
saw any deaths during his 16 year tenure in the developed world. There also saw what the “intact” survival
of a premature baby means to the parents. Hence he had this dream of providing similar care in India,
and is committed to his passion for scaling new heights in neonatology. He pioneered this concept of
maternal healthcare in India with Cloudnine – a facility dedicated to providing exclusive and comprehensive
services in maternal and child care. As the Founding Chairman, Managing Director and senior neonatologist,
he has been instrumental in securing the pinnacle attained by Cloudnine today. Dr. Kishore is an internationally
acclaimed neonatologist who has worked in four continents over the course of his career – covering North
America, UK, Asia and 12 years in Australia. He completed his MBBS from Gulbarga University and his DCH
from Mysore University and London. He also has an MD with a gold medal from Mysore University, MRCP (Paed)
& FRCPCH from UK as well as MRCPI (Paed) and FRCPI from Ireland. He has also completed his Fellowship
in Neonatal ICU with an FRACP from Melbourne, Australia. At the time of his qualification, he was amongst
one of the youngest and highest qualified neonatologists in the world. To his credit, he has worked only
in teaching hospitals around the world. Among his many awards and accreditations is the honour of being
felicitated by former US President Bill Clinton for his exceptional achievements in the field of neonatology.

At the young age of 18, Rohit ventured into merchandizing for high-end consumer electronics. This was
long before the advent of e-commerce and he ran it successfully for about 3 years. During this time he

Rohit improved operations, introduced technology for systems improvement and went on to help setup three

a single hospital in South Bangalore to other locations in Bangalore and now a multicity-chain in Chennai,
Gurgaon, Mumbai and Pune with more than 12 units and with the ambition to setup 10 more of the mother
and child units in the coming years. This was possible through his business acumen, passion and commitment
to the disruptive business model. He has led and managed the entire gambit of professionalizing the company
and attracting top talents who form the core team of Cloudnine and also been responsible for leading
the entire journey with private equity investors with the likes of Matrix Partners, Sequoia Capital and
India Value fund having invested in to the company.
