As young girls, Aditi dreamt of being a journalist and Priya was groomed to be a politician. Entrepreneurship was not for the uninitiated like us.

As young women, we found that dreams can change.

Priya chose to pursue research and public policy work while Aditi moved out of journalism into the development sector. Our paths crossed in search of a common goal – a career that counted for success beyond pay checks. We aimed for meaningful work that had an impact broader than our immediate surroundings.

Our dreams are only getting bigger. We know because we pour our minds and souls into it.

We became entrepreneurs who now only think of how to make Unlock Impact an even bigger success. We are friends who have each other’s backs and are leaders aspiring to create for social change.

Our promise to you

Despite the robust economic growth the world has witnessed over the last few decades, a majority of people remain excluded from its benefits, without access to basic goods and services or opportunities to build a dignified life without poverty. We believe innovative and inclusive business models will help build a more sustainable and equitable world. We believe in radical collaboration.

Early in my career, I realised that if I’m going to wake up and go to the office every day, it needs to be for something I care about. While I appreciate the conveniences and security of a good salary, work that has purpose is good for the mind and soothing to the soul. Building something with lasting value – a career, an organisation, a life – is tough but infinitely rewarding.

Aditi

Since I was a little girl, I have always been driven by the need to find solutions to help others. As I navigated my professional life, I always chased the paths that helped me carry out that purpose. I finally feel I have found the best path to fulfilling my purpose, as an entrepreneur helping other impact entrepreneurs succeed. It’s not always the easy path, but I believe sometimes the storms come to clear your path. So I know I won’t stop here.
