Vishnu, a lifelong entrepreneur, is our Co-Founder.

He has brought several ideas to life over his professional career – both in the for-profit and non-profit worlds. During the late ’90s, he co-founded two internet technology companies in Singapore. Both the companies were based on ideas that were ahead of their times – Artificial intelligence and Machine learning and another a fin-tech business. One of the companies was acquired in the early 2000s and then he discovered his deep interest in social development.

In the non-profit space, he worked with Ashoka as a Leadership Group Member for over a decade and led multiple teams across South Asia, South East Asia and at the Global office. His work on affordable housing, enabled the creation of over 15,000 homes across India – is now a separate organization called the Indian Housing Federation. Similarly, his work on malnutrition has led to the creation of Nourishing Schools Foundation.

He is passionate about creating large scale social change using hybrid business models.
