Digant (Dig-unth), which means horizon in Sanskrit, was the first hire at Madar Farms; a UAE-based AgTech startup with a mission to tackle regional food security and water security by focusing on sustainable farming. He is responsible for Human Resources, Accounts, and Regulatory Affairs, and supports Marketing and Procurement.
A conversation with Digant will inevitably turn to his deepest passion – politics. He worked for the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi during the national elections in 2014 and Delhi State elections in 2015. Writing is Digant’s creative outlet. His work on Indian politics and culture has been featured in online media outlets such as The Wire, The Huffington Post, Daily News & Analysis, and Youth Ki Awaaz.
Digant received an M. Phil in International Relations from the University of Cambridge and a B.A. in Economics and International Studies from Emory University. He was born and raised in Kuwait.
