The INK Fellows Program brings together a young, global and cross-disciplinary community of path-breakers who we believe will be the shapers of tomorrow. Every year, INK identifies the minds that are redefining their field of work, and the world around them. The Program aims to provide them the  support necessary to leverage their impact.  The INK Fellows Program is an initiative of Ixoraa Knowledge Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Ixoraa Media Private Limited. Tata Trusts is a key partner of Ixoraa Knowledge Foundation in supporting the INK Fellows Program. 

Our Mission

To bring together a community of game changers who have the courage to redefine the world through their imaginative ideas and creative thinking. Being an INK Fellow provides the peer-support necessary to take brilliant work to the next level.

"The Fellows Program is about making lasting contributions to the trajectories of young trailblazers, and helping them take their visions to the next level — to me the real value of the Program truly extends beyond the conference. Secretly, I like to think of it as the coolest couch-surfing community in the world. It has been wonderful to watch them grow into a family, invested not only in their own individual visions, but in the visions of their peers. "
