RAJEEV CIRCLE FELLOWSHIP
Logo Design: In the memory of Rajeev Motwani (1962 – 2009), a professor of theoretical computer science at Stanford University, early advisor and supporter of companies including Google and PayPal, special advisor to Sequoia Capital, and winner of the 2001 Gödel Prize.
Concept: The Rajeev Circle (RC) Fellowship is designed to create, mentor and empower young entrepreneurs from India and Pakistan, and to link them to Silicon Valley. The colors represent the flags of the two countries and the grey division demonstrates unity through shared history, culture and language.
“We should have realized it sooner, at least my father should have, that there was no coming back. Not in September when the riots died down, not in October when the subcontinent still lay in shock, not even in November as he had hoped and promised us.
Lahore was now lost forever”
