    This fundraiser will benefit

    Saurabh Bhukania

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra



Before that I want to introduce myself. I was working as a futures trader in International Market for 20 months in Mumbai. I am passionate about Finance, Business and Entrepreneurship. I have quit the job to start my entrepreneur journey in December 2017. Right now, we are team of two members working on a startup which is completely bootstrapped in which I have invested my savings on business development and team.

To move a step further, I would like to share with you that I have been selected to be one of the 600 delegates after a rigorous selection process, from over 40 countries of the world renowned "The Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations" Asia Conference, 2018 (Kuala Lumpur) in the Technology and Innovation track. This would be an opportunity for me to share my story about my experience, understanding and how I aspire to challenge the status quo that here and propose substantial opportunities for development. This international conference would give me an opportunity of a lifetime to transcend those prescribed limits as I move forward to become a responsible Entrepreneur and teach me how to hone my skills in the most effective way possible. I am also getting a chance to pitch my venture in front of reputed industry and government leaders and some alumni of Harvard University.

On looking at the total expenses I just realised that it was completely off my budget . So I wish to generate some amount through crowdfunding as this was my last option. The registration fees alone would cost me $475 USD, the Visa application would cost me around $45 USD and the flight tickets, accommodation etc would cost be around $290 USD. Of course, there will be additional expenditures which I will try to manage on my own. This conference would be a turning point in my career to understand the goal of my life and how I can help benefit our country from this. I have attached my acceptance letter with this story as a proof.

I would forever be grateful to you wonderful people if you could help me be a part of this one of a kind journey. Although some might accuse me of taking this too far by saying that this would be a life-changing opportunity for me, it really will be, because, at a time when I was searching for a purpose and self-identity, the very acceptance to this conference gave impetus to an incipient idea. In return, I would even try to return the gratitude which ever way possible through my skills, ideas, shoutouts at conference or in part-time research and helping you in your venture if required.

Do let me know if you have further questions and I am always happy to discuss this further. Thank you for your time.
