Iʼve really been loving the mentoring sessions because I often feel uncomfortable to speak in a large group, I feel intimidated by the people who are so confident, but today it has all changed. The mentoring sessions have really helped me break out of my shell.

Honestly, I can’t thank The Purpose Academy enough. This program has truly transformed my life and the way I used to look at challenges. I believe soon I will be able to come up with my own startups and impact the lives of many people. Thank you so much!

DLF Public School

The biggest takeaway is the fact that my purpose towards my life and my purpose towards my start-up, if different, can have a deteriorating impact on the profits of the start-up. For every decision, we should define the purpose behind it, to avoid regrets over that in the future.

We donʼt just want to become Entrepreneurs; we should be Social Entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs just think about a problem, solutions, and earning revenue, whereas Social Entrepreneurs think of how their solutions will change the world.
