Our Participants

One of our main goals while launching a new class is always to bring diversity in the pool of candidates we are training. That helps to learn from the experience of people from other than your own field and also a great way of creating a personal and professional lifelong support network to help you grow in your life.

Our participants include people from various disciplines ranging from social entrepreneurs, doctors, artists, to many working in Fortune 500 organizations like Google and EY, etc. Of course, that's not the criteria to be a part of this amazing program but one key thing we look for is a desire and goal in the participants to make a positive change in their own skills and understanding as well as a willingness to learn.
