I am Nivedha RM CEO & Founder at Trashcon Labs Private Limited. Bengaluru, Karnataka, India. Someone who believes that the skills and education one is bestowed with should be put across to the benefit of the society. With the same ideal and a great amount of passion, i started ‘Trashcon Waste Management’ at the age of 21. I co-founded an NGO at the age of 17 and continued it for four years during my graduation.
To sum me up, I believe in ‘creating an impact’. If each of us could do our bit of good, the world could be a better place to live in. I have been blessed to be supported by a great team, mentors, and establishments. Trashcon has won several awards and recognition globally. I envision that there be a day when there is no waste dumped on the streets. I was involved with a lot of social work from my childhood. Hence, when the call of ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ was just beginning, I found myself looking closely at the destruction caused by our waste menace.
I wanted to do a campaign to bring home the point of proper waste management and I realized that I could do so by clearing a piece of land near my institution. I, along with a large team, did so. ‘’My only motivational factor was to take a step towards changing this scenario, instead of just cribbing about the waste piled around us. “ Founder and CEO, Trashcon Labs Private Limited.
