Glimpse of ASCENT Conclaves

This year, the theme for 2020 is Rebuilding with Grit.

Grit is an exceptional and essential entrepreneurial trait to have, especially in unprecedented times such as these. Grit is to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Grit is to hold fast to an interesting and purposeful goal. Grit is to invest, day after week after year, in challenging practice. Grit is to fall down seven times and rise eight.

At ASCENT eConclave 2020, we are proud to bring to you inspiring stories and learnings from Thought Leaders, Domain Experts and Change Makers who have shown true Grit by embracing every challenge with Courage, Passion, and Perseverance.
