Living our values

Having moved internationally 6 times and lived in 9 cities, I have had to “learn, adapt, and grow” in perpetuity. Despite the inevitable hardships, this is life’s greatest gift to me for it has taught me unparalleled resiliency. 

Horseshoe crabs have survived 5 mass extinctions. I like to think that I, too, am like a horseshoe crab - able to thrive in any environment because I learn, adapt, and grow wherever I go.

Anuva's Story

At age 14, Anuva started a 501c(3) that collected $70,000+ worth of gently-used sporting goods for 1,400+ underprivileged children in 6 countries. Thereupon began her love for entrepreneurship and the impact it can have on the world. 

It was exactly that - Apax Digital’s entrepreneurial nature and the sheer power of tech innovation to change the world - that drew Anuva to the team.
