Zajac, the founder and executive director of the nonprofit he started in high school, also recently was included on BostInno’s 25 Under 25 list and appeared on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” to talk about his company. He also won Babson’s prestigious B.E.T.A. Challenge last year. 

Poets & Quants spotlighted Zajac in the lead of its story, noting that his venture has attracted over $1.4 million in investment. In its story, Poets & Quants wrote: “Computers For People, he says, ‘reduces electronic waste by collecting, refurbishing, and donating computers’ to ‘promote equity and access to opportunity.’ At the same time, he has expanded the company’s mission to supply free internet services and teach courses in computer building and literacy. Thus far, Zajac adds, his company has doled out 2,310 computers and hired 10 full-time employees—including some former clients.” 

Zajac also credited Babson President Stephen Spinelli Jr. MBA’92, PhD for helping advance the nonprofit. 

“He was also instrumental in Babson College making its first donation of 300 laptops in the summer of 2022,” Zajac told Poets & Quants. “President Spinelli has connected me with inspiring mentors, such as the directors of Babson’s Institute for Social Innovation and the Tariq Farid Franchise Institute, and accomplished entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds. Their guidance has provided me with invaluable insights spanning various facets of the business world, including the electronic recycling industry.”
