Co-founder and CEO of the MASH Project Foundation, a community for social entrepreneurs that was awarded the Goalkeepers Global Goals award by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 2020, Aashish Beergi is also one of the Young Ambassadors of the Estoril Conferences (India). He is one of more than 70 speakers at the conference this year and will be in Cascais at Nova SBE on the 1st and 2nd of September to talk about his experience and help answer the question “What to do now that we have the power to reach anyone, anytime and anywhere in the world?”.
The MASH Project Foundation is an award-winning social enterprise that is building an eco-system for young social entrepreneurs in India through events & workshops. About 10,000 kids were reached by the project, half a million if we include everyone who engaged in the digital campaigns made by the company. “We created MASH with the intention of developing an ecosystem that allows all young people, who are committed to solving some of these socio-economic problems, can not only find the right community for this but also can develop their capabilities, at the level of knowledge and skills. All this is made available to them through a platform that allows them to amplify their voices so that their work is seen and heard. Having one of the largest young populations in the world is one of India’s greatest assets, but if it is not used and channeled well, it will also be a huge missed opportunity”.
In an interview with Dinheiro Vivo- Media Partner of the Estoril Conferences 2022-, Aashish states he wants to help transform more and more young people into agents of change and to strengthen partnership ties with Portugal.
