Subajini Jayasekaran: Virtual Travel Through the Eyes of Locals
Suba: Nyaanum is a digital content company focused on exploration, culture, and virtual travel. What makes Nyaanum unique is that our content is created and curated by the people who live in the places we visit—as opposed to professional photographers or foreign travelers. We create the space for communities to tell their own stories about their homes—what makes this place special to them—but also stories that highlight what is shared across cultures. There is a strong focus on empowering less heard, more marginalized voices, bringing a diversity of perspective and experience. We want to become the premier company to experience the world virtually in an inclusive and respectful way by and for everyone on the planet.

We invest in socially and environmentally conscious entrepreneurs who are solving crucial issues of our times benefitting the underserved communities.
