Our Expert Panel is a platform for UnLtd India investees to connect with experienced leaders from the world of business for technical guidance. The mentorship that the Panelists provide has a huge impact on the investees and their Ventures. But what impact does the experience have on the Panelists?
"I'm kind of a hero right now, both with my son and my nieces and nephews," Panelist Suman Srivastava, modestly boasts. Suman is the CEO of EuroRSCG. During his Panel experience, he coached Nikita Ketkar of Masoom on her work within the night schools of Bombay. He was so deeply inspired by Masoom's potential that he developed a relationship with the organisation. Now, leveraging his influence from within the private sector, he advocates for Masoom, working to change the laws that are the key to improving night school education. "Most NGO's...want to do more. A gray-head like me can help...prioiritise what is more important." Aashu Calapa, president of HR and India country manager for Firstsource, had a parallel experience. By serving as a Panelist, Aashu became an important ally of Pooja Taparia, whose organisation, Arpan, is breaking ground in the prevention of child sexual abuse.
These videos, created by Give India, explain how to "give effectively" - in other words, how anyone from any sector can utilise his or her unique resources to create positive impact on society. Suman and Aashu each make a cameo appearance; they are well worth a watch.
