Rajesh Nair doesn’t believe there is an inheritable “entrepreneurship” gene, rather than entrepreneurial thinking can be cultivated and trained. Many entrepreneurs, including himself, had their interest piqued by an early experience that later proved to be transformative. In Rajesh’s case, it was the invitation to disassemble and tinker with old radios in the local radio shop of his childhood village that put him on the pathway to be an engineer and entrepreneur. EnCube Labs is the social enterprise he founded in 2014 to expose others to similar transformative experiences. He based the company’s approach and methods on research he conducted in his MIT Master’s program, under the aegis of the Tata Centre for Technology & Design. To date, EnCube Labs has run education programs for students 14 – 23yrs old across much of Asia, working with the Asia School of Business, national government, and regional government entities. We launched our first U.S.-based pilot project in Nashua, NH, during the Winter/Spring 2017, with plans to expand U.S. activities rapidly.
