Prithvi Reddy is an Engineer and a Businessman turned Social Entrepreneur and a Politician. He followed his passion in education and took charge of running a village school founded by his family. He turned it into a model rural school in Karnataka providing quality education and opportunities to village children. Prithvi also co-founded Swabal, an industry initiative to promote skill development among youth using “Earn while you learn” model, especially for school dropouts. He co-founded Smart Vote, a citizen initiative in Bangalore to make elections more meaningful and to increase voter turnout. He co-founded a local anti-corruption movement that evolved into the state chapter of the India Against Corruption movement. Although he was adamant against joining politics, it was the businessman within him that convinced the political activist that entering politics was the only way to massively scale the social enterprise he was so passionate about. He was amongst the founders of the political outfit, the Aam Aadmi Party, that spun-off from the anti-corruption movement. Prithvi has been fulfilling many state and national level responsibilities within the party.
