“My loyalty is not to Josh but to unlocking human potential” – Shobhit Banga
A school drop out, a state level Tennis player, India’s youngest qualifier of the elite “Paris – Brest – Paris” International cycling event, founder of two NGO’s – Sach & Half Glass Full, a Forbes 30 Under 30 entrepreneur and the CEO & Founder of Josh Talks – Shobhit Banga can be described in many ways. But what defines him best is his quest for unlocking human potential.
