Work10M, an ecosystem that aims to generate 10 million work opportunities by 2030 was recently launched. The vision will meet 10% of the government’s target for job creation in that time period; a powerful ambition linked to nation building. Work10M seeks to generate these opportunities by funding early-stage start-ups that will create new jobs and/or organize the unorganized job market, or indeed build future-focused and enabling talent capabilities.
A key focus of the Work10M partners is the creation of a balanced eco-system for value creation where business success and consciousness co-exist. Valuably, Work10M is building dedicated programs to strengthen a battery of entrepreneurs and enterprises centered on this new world of work.
Work10M’s Partners are Radha Ahluwalia, a thought leader in Industry Leadership networks, Kamakshi Pant, Head Strategy and Marketing, Taggd by PeopleStrong, Pankaj Bansal (Co-founder & Group CEO, PeopleStrong) and Late Shelly Singh (Co-Founder, PeopleStrong), who conceptualized the initiative. Its advisors and LPs include Faisal Saiyed, Senior Director - APAC People Team Expedia Group, Vishal Saha, Founding Member and Chief Product Evangelist, PeopleStrong, Punit Modgil, Chief Research Officer & Co-Founder, Octane Research, Arun Garg, Founding Partner Arun K. Garg & Associates and Sandeep Sinha, Managing Partner and Co-Founder, Lumis.
In the words of Pankaj Bansal, Founding Partner of Work10M, " We are entering a crucial phase in our journey as a nation. And our success resides in whether we will be able to generate sustainable work opportunities and purpose for our people or not. Work10M hopes to make a small contribution to realising this aspiration.”
