On his take-home from the Challenge, Kalpesh says: “The 3 days long Challenge provided me with the inspiration to work on various issues related to energy, poverty and security. The leadership lessons learned during the Challenge and peer group interactions empowered me to bring change in the community through sustainable innovations. After coming back home, I discovered my passion and started the journey of entrepreneurship being certain that inspiration is a trigger to innovation.’’

On one hand it offers the possibility to young professionals of learning how to apply their entrepreneurship to bring change to society, while on the other it brings together companies that support the transition of the current models of business towards a more sustainable future.
