"If India has to grow, a generation of young Indians will have to bridge the gap between classroom education and global leadership."
Sharad Sagar, Founder and CEO, The Dexterity Global Group
Founded in 2008, Dexterity Global is inspiring and enabling India's young generation to redefine education and reclaim leadership.
