Manoj Thacker

Social Innovator, Advisor, and Mentor

Advisor, Mentor, Board Member and a passionate lifelong entrepreneur, super excited to meet courageous problem solvers with Technology, AI for Good, Digitalisation, Video & Sensor Data Analytics, Edge Computing and Blockchain.

In a highly connected world, success comes from making connections that truly matter. Connecting people, young ideas and impactful technology for purpose.

I offer internationalisation / commercialisation advice to organisations, startups and university spinouts with social, environmental and economic purpose. I have been advising early-stage founders, drawing upon my decades of experience as a successful entrepreneur during which time I generated tens of millions of dollars in revenue with multiple businesses. My on-the-ground experience of business and consumer cultures in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe has proved an invaluable resource for boards and talented founders.

As a committed bootstrapper, since I was 18 years old, I bring with me practical knowledge on user needs (finding product-market and culture fit), lovable product development (MLP launch and iteration for validated learning) price setting, and sustainable revenue generation (business model fit).

I have a strong track record of identifying opportunities for integrating and distributing products and services in ways that deliver value to shareholders, employees and customers. Currently, I’m exploring new routes through which I can share this skill for social good, creative economy, sustainability, innovation, and climate change, SDG, among others. By taking responsibility not only for profits, but for the planet (ESG) and people (ED&I), I believe organisations of all sizes can make important and sustained contributions to society.

As a founder and tech enabler, I have 90000+ hours of experience ‘innovating by integrating’ and growing revenues of my companies in categories including: Watches / Consumer Electronics / Semiconductors / Affordable PC Hardware / Software / Renewable Energy / Digital Platforms / Data Visualisation.

Collectively, we want to solve the world's biggest problems. So let’s collaborate, innovate and partner to successfully affect societal change.
