For Ratan Tata Is A Goodfellow!

Last updated on: August 17, 2022 11:40 IST

Ratan Tata, chairman emeritus, Tata Sons, launched Goodfellows, India's companionship startup for senior citizens, in a bid to encourage inter-generational friendships.

RNT, who will turn 85 on December 28, has invested an undisclosed amount of money in Goodfellows.

'The bonds between the two generations created by Goodfellows are very meaningful and are helping to address an important social issue in India,' RNT added. 'I hope the investment helps the young team at Goodfellows grow.'
