Josh Talks began its journey with a simple, effective and powerful story. In 2014, undergraduate students Shobhit Banga and Supriya Paul observed that many of their fellow students were plagued by one problem: the lack of motivation, and the subdued nature of their potential. The establishment of Josh Talks was a result of this observation.

This is a platform for influentials from diverse fields, from entrepreneurship, sports, stand-up comedy, performing arts and more – who serve as speakers to instil motivation and raise the aspirations of young India. Josh Talks’ intent is now an infectious reality, as we’ve toured over 28 cities and touched over 26 million lives.
