While it’s basically consensus that most millennials are wasting time and money on avocado brunches, younger generations are actually building technological legacies. 30 Under 30 Asia list honorees and brothers Shravan and Sanjay Kumaran, 17 and 16 respectively, are famous in their home country of India for being the country’s youngest app developers.
Their company GoDimensions has already developed 12 apps, offering solutions to some of India’s most challenging social problems.
“We’ve always believed that we must do something for society,” says Sanjay, on the thinking behind their latest app GoDonate, which facilitates the donation of food to local charities that would otherwise go to waste.
“In Central Asia itself, about 500 millions tons of food is being wasted each year,” says Shravan. By the boys’ own admission, social impact is a key deciding factor behind their projects.
That, and their father, who ultimately serves as their very own Shark Tank by funding, or passing, on their pitches.
The last time their dad said no? The boys responded by building their own low-cost version of an Oculus Rift from materials in their living room.
Kids these days.
