In August 2017, 1M1B began its search for driven youth, with a mission to transform them into world leaders. 1M1B identified 10 high school students from The International School Bangalore (TISB), Bengaluru where their Future Leaders program to groom the next generation of influencers was initiated. These ten students will be going to the United Nations' headquarters in New York this month for presentations and discussions with diplomats, media, foundations, thought leaders and influencers from across the world!
Manav Subodh, Co-Founder 1M1B, and Director, International Development, Berkeley Innovation Acceleration Group and Berkeley Executive Education, UC Berkeley, left his fancy job at Intel to make a difference in the lives of villagers through village accelerator programs run by his organisation. He believes real heroes from the villages need a global platform to talk, share their stories, inspire others, influence policies and get recognized.
