David Letterman Lecutre Series: Shubham Banerjee

March 30, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

When not disrupting an industry, growing his company or pitching prospective clients, 14-year-old Shubham Banerjee can be found meeting his board, brainstorming with engineers or knocking on the doors of venture capitalists. Such is the life of Silicon Valley’s youngest entrepreneur.

In eighth grade Shubham used Lego to create a low-cost Braille printer (a.k.a. Braigo) designed over long evenings at his family’s kitchen table in Santa Clara, an hour south of San Francisco. The printer allows Braille reading materials to be printed from a personal computer or electronic device on to paper using raised dots instead of ink.

His startup, Braigo Labs, has received an undisclosed investment amount from Intel Capital and Shubham is considered the youngest entrepreneur to receive venture capital.
