Rajesh is a computer engineer who left his boring corporate job at IBM to change the world. In the last 10 years, he has worked with children in shelter homes, young people, philanthropic foundations and social entrepreneurs to build his expertise in International Development. He started his social sector journey as a fundraiser enabling more people to give to charitable causes. He was the former country head of Ashoka in Singapore-Malaysia and during his Ashoka days, he has identified several social entrepreneurs as Ashoka Fellows and designed capacity programs for scaling impact.
Rajesh is curious about people, their culture and finds humour in everyday life. He lives in Singapore with his family and has a 5-year-old daughter who is an exact clone and shares similar antics.
