Born in Gwalior, a historical town in India, Kartikeya Ladha grew up immersed in the palette of Indiaâs vibrant customs and family life whilst being educated in a rigid school system at The Scindia School, a relic from the days of the British Raj. After completing his High School, Kartikeya left India to attend the DâAmore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University in Boston, where he concentrated in Management and Entrepreneurship. Soon after graduation he moved to Brooklyn, New York and worked for a start-up solar company as a door-to-door salesman and soon became a team leader. It was one of the most successful community solarization programs in the U.S and Kartikeya fearlessly knocked doors in Brownsville, tagged as âBrooklynâs Most Dangerous Neighborhoodâ by TIME magazine in 2012. He educated hundreds of households about climate change and motivated them to take positive action for the environment by embracing renewable energy.
