About Us

As the pandemic ran roughshot over the country, leaving personal loss and economic devastation in its wake, India found itself on an inflexion point. The recovery has been slow, but sure. As one of the largest and oldest community of entrepreneurs in this country, we reflected on our 12 year long exercise of inspiring and encouraging youth in building the country, we were posed with the challenge of taking the physical journey into the digital space.

Here we stand, a year removed and one successful digital yatra later, armed with multiple initiatives that are doing fantastic work with the larger community and an even larger network of alumni hard at work on fulfilling their pledge.

Join us, as the Jagriti Digital Yatra takes you on a 15-day digital journey combining eminent speakers, power-packed initiatives and a dynamic fraternity; all driven by the boundless ambition to build the nation through enterprise. With the aim to inspire, innovate and incubate, the Jagriti Digital Yatra is a confluence of change-makers, leaders, problem-solvers and innovators. It focuses on the themes of Agriculture, Health, Technology, Handicraft and Apparel, Women Empowerment and Urbanization and interlinking entrepreneurship with nation-building. The Digital Yatra is accepting applications for over 2000 changemakers this year, building on our strong legacy of extending unyielding support to young entrepreneurs wherever possible.


The Jagriti Yatra’s experiences reimagined in the digital form. Join us for a wide-range of experiences to foster, nurture and actualize the spirit of entrepreneurship
