Executive Director, From India with Love

Deeply pained by the ongoing violence in America, Mandar Apte quit his job at Shell and led a group of Americans on a pilgrimage to India seeking new tools, wisdom and inspiration that was captured in a documentary film "From India With Love" to reinvogorate nonviolence in America.

Mandar is also the co-founder of Media Rise — a nonprofit, social enterprise to inspire the creation and consumption of meaningful media to accelerate social good. Until March 2016, Apte managed Shell's GameChanger social innovation program investing in ideas that create shared value. For over a decade, Mandar has also volunteered his time to teach meditation and leadership programs for the international Art of Living Foundation.
