5th Industrial Revolution
Gauri believes that it’s time for the world to transition into the 5th industrial revolution. He is trying toup root a long-believed idea among entrepreneurs that profits and purpose cannot co-exist. Gauri with his portfolio companies since the age of 16 has proven that one can make more profits if they have a purpose.
Currently, he has been helping Fortune 500 companies go from for-profit to for-benefit. This,according to him, is the 5th industrial revolution. He believes that when one works at the intersection of profits and impact, then the person or that company will generate more profits.
This idea has not only inspired Gauri, but has also attracted academia, family offices, ultra-high net worth individuals, celebrities, and intellectuals from around the world with a belief that ‘together we can and we will’.
