Welcome to the page where you usually want to know who is behind the site, but usually get to see a long description of what the site wants to do for you. In our case, we want to make sure that the news – good or bad – about the importance of renewable energy and the technology that can solve the earth’s biggest problems, find a platform.
With that done, let’s move on to the intros!
Prasanna is a Journalism graduate from Delhi University, who, when he realised that being a business journalist requires a lot more knowledge than the Economics and Political Science his course at college taught him, went off to do an MBA from Delhi University’s Faculty of Management Studies.
FMS briefly turned his interest to financial services, before sanity struck back, and he was quickly back to what he loves, media. He joined afaqs!, India’s earliest B2B firm for the media and advertising community, and ended up becoming COO there in seven years, before eventually moving on in 2015.
From there on, it was a search for the most fulfilling option for him, a journey that took him to Yourstory, the best and most interesting firm for startups, and a mentoring role at some large content startups from the country.
A strong interest in the environment, that frequently takes up all his free time, besides an abiding habit of keeping up with the latest in tech that can make it better, meant that when it came to the plunge, IAmRenew suggested itself.
Anirban is a senior journalist, with deep expertise in digital journalism. He has previously been associated with global news organisations Reuters and The Wall Street Journal where he headed their India digital editions. He has also been the Group Editor for Social Platforms at Network18, handling the social media strategy of the entire group. Now, Anirban is looking to build IamRenew into a platform for sustainability and related areas. His strong interest in the EV transition is a key aspect of our own focus at IamRenew.
Madhulika is a finance professional, who had a career in finance and insurance, till family happened. About two years back, she picked up the ropes again, starting off with some local volunteer work, before moving on to an almost full-time role as her area’s activist for all things good and worth preserving. While numbers remain her forte, her strong views are a refreshing antidote to thinking small. She helps us make the right choices.
