Yashomati Goyal ’13
Policy Officer, Bachpan Bachao Andolan
How do you want to change the world?
I want to help those who can’t help themselves.
How do you define entrepreneurship?
Entrepreneurship is energy. Intuition. Intent. Passion. Drive. Happiness. Clarity in thought. Clarity in action. Integrity.
What is your proudest moment in business?
My proudest moment has been working on a Supreme Court order which altered existing policies surrounding sex trafficking in India.
Why does the world need more leaders with an entrepreneurial mindset?
There are only two things we can be sure of in life: death and change. Individuals with an entrepreneurial mindset have the ability to constantly adapt to the changing needs of the community and world around them through innovative and creative ways. They see the bigger picture. While others call them dreamers, entrepreneurs understand that success often outweighs the risk of failure and have the ability to bounce right back to the drawing board when needed.
However, I believe in order for these individuals to be great leaders, their entrepreneurial mindset should be aligned with a strong value system. Babson constantly encourages you to push the boundaries but asks you to pause and reflect upon the effect that your actions have on the world.
What do others need to know about Babson?
As a school, Babson not only offers one of the greatest curriculums that is extremely well balanced between business and liberal arts but also provides one of the most diverse and spirited communities.
I was introduced to the fight against sex trafficking my sophomore year and Babson provided me with a multitude of opportunities to get involved, whether it was through classes, the Clinton Global University, or just providing me with the direction to create an independent research study around the topic
