Bill Rodriguez
Managing Director

"The success of an organization can almost always be attributed to the quality of its people. With a leadership team that combines years of experience executing large-scale projects in business and in non-profit social enterprises, with a willingness to push boundaries every day, and a passion to deliver results on the ground, The/Nudge has what it takes to achieve success in its journey to alleviate poverty at scale.”

Dr. Meenu Bhambhani
VP & Head-CSR

"I'm really excited to see The/Nudge Gurukul program evolve into one of the most innovative and immersive skill training projects in India. The need of the hour is to provide a holistic end-to-end intervention to tackle poverty, and the Gurukul program addresses this need by adopting a unique model to create deep impact in the lives of underserved youth. So glad that Mphasis was able to support The/Nudge from the very start of this journey."

"Skill training can be a tool to reduce the economic disparity that exists in India today, but we need to make some radical changes in our approach. The/Nudge Gurukul has moved away from the traditional approach in skilling and is not afraid to challenge the status quo to deliver the best-in-class youth development and poverty alleviation program in India. The Gurukul program shares our mantra in truly “Creating Smiles For Miles”!"

Head - South Asia, Social Innovation Group

"What's really interesting for me is the innovative approach that the Gurukul program has adopted in creating not just a skill training program but a program that prepares youth for life. Really happy with the depth of thinking that goes into each aspect of the intervention right from Admissions all the way to Life/Guard, their alumni support program. Innovation is at the center of everything that we do at Cisco, and partnering with The/Nudge Gurukul program strongly aligns with that spirit."

Prakriti Panwar
Head - Corporate Sustainability

"Having interacted with the students on multiple occasions, the change that The/Nudge Gurukul program brings about in each of them is very evident and visible. The team’s quality and their dedicated focus on continuous improvement is a significant reason why the program is turning out to be one of the most efficient and effective programs in the skill development space today. Wells Fargo is proud to be a partner!"
