Josh Talks was co-founded by Shobhit Banga & Supriya Paul in January 2015 with the goal of raising the aspirations of Young India.
What started as a simple conference back then is now a robust media platform that covers a wide array of subjects with speakers from every conceivable background, including entrepreneurship, public policy, sports, entertainment and social initiatives.
With multiple regional languages in our ambit, our stories and speakers echo one desire: to inspire action.
Over the last 3 years, we have toured over 28 cities in India, showcased over 500 talks and touched over 35 million lives, both online and offline. We have also conducted more than 100 workshops across colleges in India in collaboration with Facebook, the world’s largest online community. Josh Talks is proactively building an all-inclusive, passionate community of young individuals from rural and urban areas, with a special focus on tier II and tier III cities.
All talks hosted across conferences are recorded, edited and made available to the world to watch for free on our YouTube channel and Facebook pages. We are also proud to be associated with ScoopWhoop, YuppTV, GazabPost, Pocket Aces and Dainik Bhaskar, among many others.
Josh Talks passionately believes that a well-told story has the power to reshape attitudes, lives, and ultimately, the world. When publications like The Economic Times, and companies like SutraHR determine that we are among the "Top Startups" in India, we are spurred to break our current area of impact and go beyond it. While this recognition is exciting, our primary motivation will always be centred on producing and showcasing the greatest, most inspiring stories on the planet.
Do you know anyone who has an inspirational story to share? If you do, get in touch with us.

”India is a land of story-telling. And we somehow have lost that magic over the years. Josh Talks aims to bring back those stories, in person, and spread positivity. It’s unique in the sense that it brings back something that I felt has begun to miss from our daily lives.”
