Arun MaharajanSenior Innovation Consultant
Arun believes in maximizing human potential, as a people and as individuals. This led him on a path of curiosity, experimenting, experiencing, reflecting, connecting and collaborating in areas spanning technology, art and design.
He has worked in the German automotive industry for close to 10 years in areas spanning engineering, project management and product management for clients in Asia, Europe and South America. Among others, he has worked with Bosch, Mercedes Benz, Peugeot-Citroen Motors, Ssangyong and Mahindra & Mahindra.
In order to further explore himself and the world, he returned to India in 2013 and spent a year teaching in a low income school in a Mumbai slum. He was instrumental in introducing multimedia based teaching in his school which resulted in increased student engagement.
