After travelling the world for six months in 2011, Srin Madipalli quit his job as a lawyer and joined the MBA program at the University of Oxford’s Said Business School. A power wheelchair user living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Madipalli was particularly attracted to tech and startups, and quickly focused in on the power of technology to transform the lives of people with disabilities. While earning his MBA he taught himself to code, and soon co-founded Accomable, a web app that grew to list accessible accomodations in 60 countries around the world.
In November of 2017, Accomable was acquired by Airbnb, and Madipalli joined Airbnb as its accessibility product and program manager. There, he has overseen the addition of 21 new consumer-facing accessibility filters, while also exploring how Airbnb can make its hiring and management practices more inclusive for job candidates and employees living with disabilities.
