Founder & Chief Inspiration Officer
Amitabh Shah launched Yuva Unstoppable 14 years ago at a mere age of 23. After completing his MBA from Yale, he passed up a JPMorgan Banking Wall Street offer to work on the real streets of India.Touched by the stories he came across every day and inspired by the enthusiasm of other young people to volunteer, he founded YUVA Unstoppable—to act as a catalyst in the development, improvement and growth of children. He learnt that there is a lot of goodness in this world and everyone wants to do something to help other so they simply do not know how to go about it. Amitabh truly believes in what gandhiji said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” There was a serious resistance for the ﬁrst year from his friends and family. They asked, “Why do you want to start serving others so early? Why don’t you wait till you are 60 and when you are a billionaire or retired from a top company?” Amitabh did not give up though and, in fact, his family is his biggest cheerleader now.
