Entrepreneur and investor Nitin Rai is on a bold mission to change the balance of women and minorities in business for better, and he backs his intentions with solid investments. Inclusion, he says, includes everybody. Diversity frequently describes women and minorities, while inclusion welcomes, as well, veterans, rural communities, and anyone or any group underrepresented, underserved or marginalized by changing economies.
He is bullish on an inclusive future, pointing to demographic trends in the country. We are growing more multicolored, “a United Colors of Bennetton”, he says. “Teenagers today have a very different view of the world, even from millennials. Inclusion and diversity are a part of their lives, especially in cities. They not only expect this to happen, they want it to happen. We must be conscious of this upcoming generation.”
