Manoj Thacker – Social Innovator

I am passionate about entrepreneurship, particularly when it leads to social or environmental impact – and my focus remains on supporting, building and investing in purpose driven startups.

I ask myself each day- What do I want to accomplish? What is my legacy? Is business a force for good – how do we build a new world with impact and technology? How do I find a place where we remain human centric by designing and co-creating solutions for sustainability?

With climate change and social inequalities growing, the only question is- How do we move to a “triple bottom line”: People, Planet, Profit?

No conversations can move without mentioning COVID19, it has infected everything and, amidst all the wreckage, it is hard to find anything good. I found some hope when I met the Founder of Airway Medical, Simon Hall, and found a clarifying opportunity to rethink, rebuild, and rejuvenate my life and career – and to envision a new normal. 

I enjoy walks, listening to podcasts, and cooking with my family. I am applying a new focus after reading a book by gifted author Todd Miller ‘Enrich Create Wealth in Time, Money and Meaning’. It has reignited the youthful passion and drive that had slowly faded over the course of my career. Enrich is a methodology that empowers you to design an aspirational plan and live it. I found my home at Airway Medical as life goes round in full circle for entrepreneurs.
