After attending the tGELF Life Conference 2017 in New Delhi, my perception of the world completely changed. Not only did I receive the opportunity to learn, create and implement entrepreneurial solutions for the UN sustainability goals in a team based environment, I was also fortunate enough to listen to motivating talks from important leaders from around the world and about their views, which inspired me to take initiative on spreading awareness on our current global situation and perhaps pursue entrepreneurship in the future.
In my team, we aimed to bring the company ‘Pimi Agro’ to India to improve crop growth and storage for bettering hunger issues, from which I gained knowledge about such solutions and also made many new friends.
The conference was enlightening and rewarding, and if given an opportunity, I would be thrilled to take part in this extraordinary experience again.
