We are delighted to host Siddharth Sthalekar, founder of Sacred Capital, who will share his journey, perspectives and work with us. In his own words: Since early 2011 I have been learning from small acts of compassion at the Eco-system in the Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad. I’ve begun to trust that serving with pure intentions holds the key to looking at the world with a deeper, and clearer perspective.
Some of what I learnt starkly contrasted my education at IIM-A and 5 years heading a trading floor that created magic out of equity derivatives and algorithms. These insights often lead me to question the basic assumptions of modern economic systems of Scarcity, Transaction and Consumption.
Event: TALK | Siddharth Sthalekar, founder, Sacred Capital
Date: Friday, 11th March, 2016
Time: 6.45 pm
About Siddharth: A graduate of IIM-Ahmedabad, Siddharth was part of India’s capital markets where he headed India’s largest equity-derivatives and algorithmic trading desk and was a weekly feature on television channels.
However, several burning questions, and a one-day visit to Gandhi Ashram ended up
changing the course of his life. In the 4 years that he spent at the Ashram and its associated communities he sought an alignment with his value system. Various experiments in economics such as the Seva Cafe and Moved By Love
allowed him to deepen his understanding of wealth.
Since 2014 he has been working on an intention called ‘Sacred Capital’.
As a Registered Investment Adviser, he helps individuals and organisations understand the role of wealth in their lives, particularly in light of the changing paradigms of the 21st Century. The key, he believes, lies in ‘Engaging with our Wealth‘ and
‘shifting from an Asset Based Approach to an emphasis on Currency Flows’.
