What I took away from the event was that there are so many people across the world who want to come together and solve the biggest problems humanity is facing today. Two years ago, it was an event like this that inspired me to become a social entrepreneur.
Prukalpa Sankar Co-Founder, Social Cops (Unconvention 2015)
It’s difficult for startups to be able to afford such conferences, and I usually don’t like networking, but the interactions I had were exciting! A lot of them made me rethink a bunch of things. I’m very happy I was able to make it.
Sombodhi Ghosh Co-Founder, Aakar Innovations (Unconvention 2014)
The event was a great platform to meet and interact with like-minded social entrepreneurs and a source of inspiration to keep us motivated. It was also a wonderful opportunity where we could connect with other stakeholders in the impact investing space.
