Taj Pabari is a seventeen-year-old inventor, social entrepreneur and educational pioneer passionate about inspiring children to discover and embrace the world of entrepreneurship through technology and innovation.
In late 2014, Taj founded Fiftysix Creations, a build-it-yourself tablet and coding kit for kids. As easy as a puzzle, as fun as a computer game. The company aims to ignite the creative spark in all children by allowing them to build and customise their very own tablet, along the way learning about what really makes it go. The social enterprise has since set a goal of educating one million kids by 2020.
To date, Taj has had his work and story featured by National Geographic, 60 Minutes, ABC, Sky News, Sunrise, CNBC, The Australian, Channel Seven, Channel Nine and Channel Ten. He is also one of the people Australia’s Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, believes will push the nation’s economy forward.
