This Bihar Based Entrepreneur Sharad Sagar Has Been Invited To White House By Barack Obama

As the world is going Digital, it is indeed becoming a much smaller place to live in by bringing people together from many remote areas and forming an ecosystem of a positive energy. It is dissapointing to note that the average world literacy rate is 86.3% as compared to the average Asia literacy rate which is around 70%. This figure is indeed below average.

But this bihar based entrepreneur Sharad Sagar was able to tap on to this potential innovative market and founded the company ‘Dexterity Global’ which aims at proving the best educational opportunities to every child living in any remote area which is not well connected with the rest of the world and the opportunities blooming over there.

It just requires a little bit of an extra effort to bring in the change that you desire in someone’s life and Sharad Sagar had the guts to do that and took the path less travelled. He is a former student of St Dominic Savio’s High School in Patna who was lately one among the top Forbes ‘30 Under 30’ list of social entrepreneurs.

After getting his name into the top list of Forbes ’30 under 30′, Sharad Sagar has been invited to the White House to be a part of ‘South by South Lawn’ event, which is basically hosted by President Barack Obama. The purpose of this event is to bring together creators and innovators from around the world and give them respect for their positive work to the society. Sharad Sagar was nominated and has been selected to participate in the prestigious event.
