You're reading Entrepreneur India, an international franchise of Entrepreneur Media.
This Atlanta-based, India-born CEO has been staying abroad for around 31 years now, but the love for his homeland has only increased with each passing year.
Besides his reputation as a CEO who had bailed NASDAQ-listed, software giant Ebix Inc. out of its financial doldrums and gave it the much-needed stability, Robin Raina is now better known, worldwide, for his philanthropic initiatives in India.
His organizational skills are hailed by one and all as even after managing hundreds of employees, attending numerous meetings and overseeing company’s operations, he has the time for his personal goal — taking up the cause of the underprivileged.
Robin Raina Foundation (RRF) has built around 2,304 houses for the homeless in the country and aims to build 6,000 more by 2020. The foundation funds the education of more than 3500 children from the below poverty line (BPL) families, runs multiple schools across India, an orphan home in Mumbai, medical ambulances in Delhi and a hospital ward in Pakistan.
Entrepreneur India caught up with this dynamic CEO to learn what prompted Raina to take up social initiatives.
“I want to burn everything that I have created and accumulated in my lifetime. Money is what complements my work. I don’t think personally I would be a different person, had I any more or less money in hand,” added Raina.
