Most who know her are aware that she enjoys the company of fellow impact friends, colleagues and most of all volunteers.

Prateek

Co-Founder & Director

Prateek has over 2 decades of experience in both Corporate and Impact space. He started off as a volunteer before co-founding GiftAbled. He believes we need to begin with end in mind. Hence, any social enterprise contributing for any cause should work towards ensuring that their effort enables the beneficiaries over a period of time to become self-reliant and independent thereby making the social enterprise redundant in that region.

He loves to go on long drives as long as he is not driving . His current favorite book is ‘Zero to One’ by Peter Thiel.
