Swathi Attavar is an Indian entrepreneur, passionate about policy, politics and designing meaningful interventions with local governments. 

Ingrained with an early commitment to social change, Swathi chose to pursue my undergraduate studies in social sciences in Bengaluru, and then received the Rajiv Gandhi Cambridge Scholarship to pursue a second degree in Psychology, Politics and Sociology at the University of Cambridge.

After gaining early professional experience in legislative research, government advisory and non-profit advocacy in New Delhi, she co-founded Adosphere in 2015: an early-stage technology-led communications start-up that works closely with governments and elected representatives implementing digital transformation around policy priorities. 

At the Blavatnik School of Government, Swathi wants to delve into social policy and governance in the digital age; particularly how to strengthen policy frameworks for social protection and resilience building using technology in post-pandemic India.
