The list comprises of most inspiring young leaders from across the Asian region. Thousands of nominations were put forward, with the final 30 being chosen by a panel of highly respected industry leaders. Yashveer’s inclusion on this list was in recognition of the contribution he has made to the promotion of youth-led social change in the South Asian region. He currently heads the Youth Venture Program at Ashoka Innovators for the Public, which is the world’s largest network of social entrepreneurs & innovators. Through his work with Youth Venture, Yashveer works with educational institutes, government agencies, businesses and youth networks to build an ecosystem where young people can identify themselves as social change-makers and practice change-making early on in their lives.

Yashveer earned his MBA degree from the Said Business School in 2014 and during his time at Oxford led the Social Impact Oxford Business Network (OBN).
