About the Event

It’s undeniable; businesses are experiencing a cultural shift, as it encourages entrepreneurs to tackle some of society’s biggest challenges. Every day we hear more stories about the power of business to be a force for good. It’s no longer enough for an enterprise to earn a good profit. There’s a growing expectation that it will contribute to society and to a sustainable future.

Philanthropic and government resources alone won’t be sufficient to address today’s greatest challenges.  Communities around the world will need committed entrepreneurs and investors to help drive the next wave of great social change and environmental conservation.

In collaboration with Microsoft, Impact 17+1 club is pleased to invite impactors from across the world to iTalk XI and honored that for this event, we will welcome Shaloo Garg from Microsoft as our keynote speaker.
