Karn Ghosh is the Founder and CEO of Kinela, a leading Australian social enterprise that empowers people living with disability to achieve their health goals.
Karn graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) with first class honours, and was awarded the Dean’s Scholar medal for finishing first in his class. He has maintained close ties with the University since graduating, currently sitting on the Alumni Council and having been given the honour of delivering the formal address to the graduating class of 2016.
Whilst working as a Physiotherapist, he founded SportsMed Studio, a mobile app-development company through which he developed and released Stretch HD – the leading cross-platform stretching app globally.
His early experiences working as a clinician in both in the public and private healthcare systems provided exposure to a patient population that was struggling with the burden of preventable chronic disease, and played a role in forming the central theme of his work – ‘health equity’.
Karn brings his health background, patient-centric worldview and passion for preventative health, to his everyday work. He’s actively involved in the not for profit world, and is a promoter of business as a force for good. In 2018, he was recgonised as a Westpac Social Change Fellow for his contributions to the healthcare industry in Australia.
