What are Changemakers saying?

It was a great experience learning with the stalwarts in the field.we actually got to look into very minute details of the system level work that is required for an organisation to scale and become more self sufficient while serving the society.

NCLB is an amazing initiative where legal experienced entrepreneurs share their valuable insights and experiences by mentoring young Innovators in their ideas. All the guidance, lessons and word-of-caution that were shared were extremely beneficial.

When a highly capable, experienced mentor deeply listens to a young entrepreneur and than gives unbridled feedback, magic happens. Agami makes that magic happen.
