Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to Involve?

A: In the past 15 years, there has been a gradual shift in the culture of business organizations world over. From being more employer focused, enterprises are now more employee focused. The happiness, team spirit, job satisfaction and psychological well-being of an employee now holds a great importance for management.

In this new employee centric environment, Involve is familiarizing companies to evolve to this new atmosphere. Involve is headquartered out of Santa Monica,CA. We provide a new way of giving back to the community by curating opportunities specifically catered to the unique tastes of each of the employees. This enables employees to give back to their favorite causes and make a difference in the world.

Being able to give back to the community engages the employees further with their company’s mission and vision. It improves the culture and team collaboration up to 81% in the companies, and reduces turnover by up to 30%.

Q: What is your personal background story?

A: I was born in a very humble family in New Delhi, India. I lost my father when I was 2 years old to colon cancer. I saw my mother struggle to put food on the table and provide for our family. Back then, a lot of US companies were trying to gain foothold in the Indian market and had very mission driven Corporate Social Responsibility programs. I met an engineer who was volunteering in India through one of these programs and he really inspired me to learn coding. He told me that nothing in life is unachievable and I took his message to heart with me that day. I started my first company at 17 with my current co-founder. We developed a software that could track and predict possible gender based abortions, which was a huge problem in India at the time. It was so huge that eventually the company we sold it to, sold it to the Indian government! I then went on to attend CSULB and got my degree in Aeronautics and Aerospace Engineering.

I now want to inspire my community and help other young people, who if equipped with resources, will change the world someday. I feel equipping companies’ employees to be able to do that is the easiest, fastest and best way to make the world a better place than what it is now.
