Pratik Gauri, A Global Youth Icon from India creating 5th Industrial Revolution
29-year-old global impact entrepreneur Pratik Gauri is on the path to positively impact 6 billion humans by redefining “business as usual”
COVID 19 crisis has made everyone believe “Business As Usual” won’t work. We need to redefine the way we do business. What will be the post-COVID-19 new normal? 5th Industrial Revolution!
Business and Impact can go hand-in-hand and companies can make more profits if they positively impact society. Impact entrepreneur Pratik Gauri has proven companies end up making more profits if they focus on impact. He has been helping fortune 500 brands move from for-profit to for-benefit. This is what he calls the “5th Industrial Revolution.”
In the Fifth Industrial Revolution, humans and machines will dance together, metaphorically, writes Pratik in his article published in The European Sting. “5IR is about using frontier technology created in 4IR ( AI / IoT / Blockchain etc ) to positively impact humanity”, says Pratik.
Gauri has also successfully proven that companies get a better ROV (Return On Value) when they mobilise marketing money towards social causes. Through 5th Element Group, a global impact consultancy he runs in India, he mobilises millions of marketing dollars for social causes which increases ‘Brand Warmth’ of the brands.
In January 2020, he also helped take RB’s Harpic Mission Paani stewarded by Amitabh Bacchhan to World Economic Forum in Davos. Amidst COVID 19, he and his colleagues at 5th Element Group helped build “Some Good News”, a global news phenomenon by actor John Krasinski by mobilising money from Pepsico and Starbucks towards restaurant associations.
Gauri founded his first startup when he was 16, and since then he has founded 8 purpose startups in the 5IR Space. “The only way to be successful in post COVID-19 world is by creation of omniwins”, says Gauri. He has managed to create win-win partnerships between Fortune 500 companies, Ultra High Net Worth Individuals / Family Offices, Social Entrepreneurs, and Government.
Globe-trotter Pratik went to 26 countries last year and represented India at prestigious covenings like World Economic Forum in Davos, Skoll World Forum in Oxford, Nobel Peace Prize Forum in Oslo, and United Nations in New York. He also won Gold at the UNLEASH innovation lab for SDGs in China.
Among his many awards, he has been named a GreenBiz Global “30 under 30”, BP Scholar, WEF Global Shaper, Climate Leader trained by US Vice President Al Gore, Ambassador at One Young World, and Asia’s top 50 voices by Earth Day Network.Looking at his vision and plans, this 29-year-old is definitely on the path to becoming a self-made billionaire. When asked about his plans to become a billionaire, he smiles and says, “If i can make 6 billion people live more abundant lives by building unicorn startups in the 5IR space, i’m certain i’ll have an abundant life too.”The world certainly needs more impact entrepreneurs like Pratik to redefine “business as usual.”
