All of Asha’s venture and philanthropic initiatives in India have been designed to help the nation break free of this cycle of poverty. “Exponential growth is possible through technology–enabled entrepreneurship, lean government, world class education ,and women’s leadership”.
Asha founded Motwani Jadeja Family Foundation to develop a network of entrepreneurs in South Asia trained to think and drive exponential change. The foundation supports US – India partnership for disruptive entrepreneurship, gender equality, and inclusive development.
A firm believer in self-sustaining social movements supported by local communities, Asha created and enabled Maker Fest – a grassroots social movement that is now prolific in Africa, India and more recently in Brazil. She created India’s first network of dozens of Fablabs designed to spark a just in time manufacturing environment in India. With help from Prof Sugata Mitra, Asha set up India’s first self supported School in the Cloud in Ahmedabad. This has now grown to over 60 locally managed and sustained “schools in the cloud” within South Asia.
Asha is a prolific thought leader and speaker at various global events.
