Sattva Consulting
Our Work

Sattva, in Sanskrit, means ‘true essence’ and ‘consciousness’.

We believe that addressing complex societal challenges requires a fundamental shift in the way businesses, societies, governments and other stakeholders engage with each other. The aspirations of the people who live today at the ‘base of the pyramid’ needs to be absorbed in sustainable and inclusive ways in the larger growth story. We believe that entrepreneurs, organisations and communities who come together and script these solutions will define the future course of our collective “tomorrow”.

And this is why we exist – to pursue the goal of vanquishing poverty in our lifetime by co-creating models that are scalable, sustainable and globally relevant, by serving as a bridge across varied stakeholders, by designing and implementing solutions that can bring long-lasting impact.
