Lead – Sustainable Earth Summit, Event coordinator

Akshat is an undergrad student pursuing a B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from Netaji Subhas University of Technology (NSUT), New Delhi. His core competencies lie in inclusive growth, decision making, and problem-solving to name a few.

The boy with big ambitions and a curious mind, Akshat always had an itch to contribute towards the causes/issues affecting society and the world in general. And that’s when he along with his high school mates decided to set up an organization that promotes inclusivity and where people can work or more specifically act towards the causes they care about. 

As he summarises all of it with his favourite quote: “The people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
