Piyush is the Founder & Managing Trustee of the Save Life Foundation. Ever since the death of his cousin Shivam Bajpai in a road accident in year 2007, Piyush has been working to establish a network of like-minded individuals and institutions to achieve his goal of reducing the mortality rate on Indian roads. Piyush is a graduate from University of Delhi and works with the Calibrated Group, a US-based private equity fund, as the head of its India business. Prior to joining Calibrated Group, Piyush was involved in setting-up and managing the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), a public-private partnership between the Government of India and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

The Save LIFE Foundation (SLF) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization focused on enabling Bystander Care, the immediate care that Police and public can provide emergency victims, especially those of road accidents, to enhance their chances of survival. Bystander Care will continue to play a key role in saving lives given the massive traffic congestion across most Indian cities, which hinder quick movement of EMS vehicles.

Over the past 2 years, Save LIFE has trained over 2500 Police first-responders in Delhi leading to a significant enhancement in survival rate of accident victims due to administration of basic emergency care to victims. Their immediate goal is to establish a community based and community driven emergency response service that will see over 8000 public volunteers in Delhi being trained in Basic Trauma Life Support skills, connected through a call centre so that they can be mobilized as first-responders in the event of a medical emergency, especially road accidents.
