The massive inequalities of the world across boundaries require a purpose-driven innovation strategy that scales. We are committed to co-work with entrepreneurs to create impactful enterprises until these ESG problems become a history for our planet.

Our Philosophy.

Manush  - Sanskrit मनुष्य (manuya), derived from Manu - 'human'

We believe that societies can be transformed through 'humane' entrepreneurial interventions that go beyond business profitability. We empower compassion-driven impact entrepreneurs to nurture their ideas into equitable and scalable solutions while democratizing access to mentoring, funding, and network building within the innovation ecosystem.

Our Roots.

Born at MIT and Harvard, the team finds its inspiration in human-centered/people-driven initiatives undertaken at the robust and inclusive entrepreneurship of the Boston startup ecosystem to combat social inequalities and injustices in the world. We believe that the right use of technology with human knowledge has the power to bring unprecedented changes in the world.

Indian-American Venture Capitalist (Investor, Manush Labs)

Let me congratulate you Piyush, You probably have one of the best startups. I mean it's amazing you started just a year ago and you've been able to curate such a great group of entrepreneurs and really help them get to this point.

As entrepreneurs, It's thousands of bridges that we need to cross and we don't really know what all those bridges are. You've done a fantastic job of actually bringing these entrepreneurs together, connecting them to mentors, venture capitalists, investors, and giving them the opportunity and the resources to actually pick the right bridges and cross them.
