Roshan Paul


Roshan Paul is the Co-Founder and CEO (India) of Amani Institute ( ).

He has spent his life questioning the status quo, and built a career around connecting global citizens to solve social problems across boundaries. He co-founded Amani Institute in 2011 with these values in mind. He has worked on Ashoka’s Peace Initiative (supporting social entrepreneurs in conflict zones) and the Globalizer program (helping social entrepreneurs scale up their innovations).

Raised in Bangalore, Roshan has a Master’s in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School and a Bachelor’s in International Political Economy from Davidson College (a degree he self-designed). He has studied and worked on every continent (aside from Antarctica, where he hopes to travel next) and is a hopeless cricket junkie. He is the author of two books: ‘Such a Lot of World‘, a novel, and ‘Your Work Begins at No’, a collection of essays on social impact education.
