Our Mission

Our mission is to catalyze global change by connecting the world’s doers with extraordinary opportunities.


Our Values

Be Generous

If we all give, we all get. Share opportunities widely. Make time for others.

Be Trustworthy

Be honest about who you are and what you’re capable of. Deliver on what you say you’ll do.

Show Respect

We respect each other, despite all our differences.

No Ego

Leave your ego at the door. Everyone matters. Give others the space to contribute.

Be a doer, not a talker

Talk less, do more. Be a ‘GYSHIDO’. Deliver substance, not hype.

What we believe

Our Mantra

“Relationships, not transactions”. We understand that relationships take time to build and trust is our most valuable currency; it is built over decades not hours, over simple conversations and not just deals. We invite you to join The Room if you are interested in connecting, learning and sharing with game-changers from around the world.


Our Founder

For the last 15 years, my work has focused on connecting talented individuals to opportunity – especially opportunities that change the world. The organizations I have founded have collectively impacted over 30,000 talented individuals from around the world. From this work, I have seen how the right opportunity, at the right time, can accelerate the trajectory of a passionate, driven individual.

I believe that now more than ever, the world’s greatest talent needs a platform that fuels their ambition and accelerates their impact. At The Room, we want to support our members to become the best version of themselves personally and professionally. We want to catalyze collaborations that can change the world. We welcome you to be a part of our story and join this global community of doers and game-changers who will make history.

Our Founder

I believe that those of us who are privileged enough to be educated, healthy, and part of powerful networks should not be doing easy things. The only way to justify our privilege is to do the hard things that society demands of us — to solve tough problems and create opportunities for others. I launched The Room to bring the most ambitious ‘doers’ together to do these hard things that will change the world. I welcome you to be a part of our story and join this global community as we make history together.
