EDGE 2018

This year, EDGE focused on Leadership – A key vector for change and facilitated a common engagement platform for the funding fraternity and the non-profit community. The day hosted engaging conversations with dignitaries from different sectors who have engineered positive changes in development through their intent, intelligence and identity.

The day saw three panels which featured leaders of renowned non-profits who have traversed Uncharted Territories in philanthropy, introduced the Influencers who are have come together for enabling women empowerment and showcased eminent personalities from philanthropy and popular media who spoke on Building on their Personal brands for driving support for a cause.

EDGE Talks showcased the journey of four grassroots leaders we work with, who spoke about the genesis of the organisations they created, and continue to lead.

Like each year, this EDGE too successfully converged positive intent and laid the foundation for opportunities for partnership between various players in the philanthropy landscape.
