Under25 Summit to break all Indian records as India’s largest youth festival in 2020

Co-founders Anto Philip & Shreyans Jain have built as much clout in classrooms as in boardrooms and newsrooms across the country by pioneering the discovery of many growing Indian subcultures.


From humble beginnings in 2014, the seventh edition of the ‘Under 25 summit’ has much to celebrate in 2020 with a series of India-wide firsts to its credit. The Bengaluru based event is poised to become India’s largest festival ‘ever’ with 250+ speakers addressing over 18000+ people across two days at the iconic Jayamahal Palace in Bengaluru on February 1 and 2.

Co-founders Anto Philip & Shreyans Jain have also built as much clout in classrooms as in boardrooms and newsrooms across the country by pioneering the discovery of many growing Indian subcultures that currently form the underbelly of our youth movement. 2020’s unique festival theme #TakeAStand furthers their dream of uniting the Indian youth-force with a common purpose and pledges to create a community of active doers who do not shy away from taking action on issues and initiatives they feel strongly about. This makes the Under 25 Summit the ‘true north’ for understanding, acknowledging and manifesting the ‘change mindset’ of young India across the 18 to 25 age bracket. The summit aims to achieve this by bringing together renowned experts for Speaker Sessions, Panel Discussions, Live Performances, Art Showcases, Masterclasses, Experience Zones and a lot more across the two day inspiration-fest.

Curated events at the festival include a Music Stage, Flea Market and a Food Zone, however this is where the similarities (with any other festival) stop. ‘Innovative asks’ by the youth include exclusive additions such as a Gaming Arena, an Innovative Job Market, which will have on display new job areas such as Head of Culture, Well-being Manager, Digital Trend Analyst, Head of Youth Communication etc, Creative education Zones and Camp Tinder - making this summit #notjustanotheryouthfestival. Drawing attention to ‘matters that matter’ this year, are personalities like Faye D’Souza, Aishwarya Suresh, Tanmay Bhat, Naveen Richard, Jordinian, Sumukhi Suresh, Dhruv Chitgopekar, Spitfire, Mukhesh Chhabra, Taba Chake and many others.

“Conceptualized as a platform for driven, entrepreneurial youth who want to connect with like-minded individuals from across the country, Under 25 Summit is already recognized as India's Largest Youth Festival that brings together top national and international speakers from diverse fields like music, design, technology, entrepreneurship, content creation and many more to inspire the youth of our country,” feels Shreyans Jain, Co-founder, Under 25.

“The potential that the youth exudes needs to be channeled, while creating a space that is fun, young and full of energy. Our overarching thought of #TakeAStand allows attendees to interact with their icons and also assert their views on equality, saving the environment, mental health, building value driven communities and to create, collaborate, explore, educate, love and celebrate the confusion of youth,” feels Anto Philip, Co-founder, Under 25.

The seventh episode of the summit promises impact like none other, with a whopping 25 Million+ estimated digital reach across portals such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Snapchat, to the most dynamic age profile India currently has, youngers between the age of 18 to 25. Census surveys dictate that over 50% of the Indian population falls under this age bracket, making the Indian youth a powerful force to be reckoned with when it comes to carving the future of India’s new tomorrow.

Over 50,000 Indians under the age of 25 and 600+ youth icons and change makers have been a part of the Under 25 family since its inception 6 years ago. The festival has visited cities like Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi and Hyderabad in the past, witnessing an increase in attendance with each passing year. Under 25 is definitely in the business of consciously building the largest youth brand the country has seen by eagerly going where no other brand has gone before, to bring youngsters all over the country closer to spread creativity and talent.

Won’t you, then, join them as they change the future of India one step after the other?
