I am trying to build the social entrepreneurship movement in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana through the largest network of social entrepreneurs in the region – UnLtd Hyderabad. Our mission is to find, fund and support individuals whose ideas, passion and entrepreneurial skills can bring long-term solutions to social problems. At UnLtd Hyderabad we have supported 21 social entrepreneurs so far who in turn have created 45 Jobs and impacted the lives of over 40,000 people in AP and Telangana. I have a clear vision to accelerate the impact of change-makers in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. we are on a mission to incubate over 100 early stage social entrepreneurs by 2018. Interested to join us? Check us out at – http://unltdhyderabad.org/
Prior to UnLtd Hyderabad I co-founded and led Cycle Chalao!, the pioneering bicycle sharing system of India. I have worked with several notable non-profits like Loksatta, CFAR and for-profits like ID Sports, and government institutions at local leves, such as Pune Municipal Corporation and national levels, such as Ministry of Urban Development. Featured in the Forbes, The Guardian, Fast Company and Outlook Business Magazines, I have been a fellow at Unreasonable Institute and a former UnLtd India investee.
I am a Philosophy graduate and an MBA in Social Entrepreneurship. I am on a mission to reduce suffering and inequality through social entrepreneurship, business and politics. Please let me know if you have an idea relevant to my mission and I would love to work with you! I am also interested to discuss ideas related to Public Transport, Urban Governance and Politics as a tool for Social Change.
Here’s what I do these days
