BREAKING DOWN KNOWLEDGE SILOS
We are building a one-of-its-kind non-partisan platform centred around knowledge with influential names in the fields of Academia, Politics, Business, Sciences and Arts.
We create unique opportunities for in-depth encounters with inspiring thought leaders. These are deep dive sessions focused on a specific topic in which the presenter has expertise by the virtue of their research or experience. Alternatively the presenter may have significant influence over public opinion or policy formulation in the relevant area.
Through this we are working on democratising one of the key privileges traditionally accessible only to exclusive clubs such as students and alumni of world’s prestigious universities or prized employees of top multinationals.
