Sanera Maharaj is an industrial engineering manager working for MAHLE, one of the largest automotive suppliers in the world. She oversees several improvement areas and keeps a careful eye on productivity, cost and waste reduction, and process mapping.
In the past, she was chosen by the Super Scientists initiative to be a spokesperson for STEM careers. More recently, Maharaj and her team were one of two winners of the MAHLE Global Incubator 2021.
With funding from the company, and since winning the competition, she’s been able to pursue her own idea. She’s been busy creating her own corporate start-up — and has learned much along the way.
“My work has changed from a traditional industrial engineering manager to an entrepreneur,” she says. “I look at the product, market and customers all at the same time.”
“Through my incubation project and other potential business ideas that I have, I am hoping to make a difference in the lives of young people in our country.”
