Sandhya JoseExecutive Associate - Projects & Initiatives

Sandhya joined Elevar in 2022 as the Executive Associate for Projects & Initiatives.

Prior to joining Elevar, Sandhya worked with the IDEX Accelerator for close to six years, where she built and anchored the IDEX Global Fellowship Program focused on creating the next wave of “social intrapreneurs”. Sandhya’s responsibilities included IDEX’s sustainability and success, stakeholder management, program curriculum design, ecosystem collaborations, managing admission cycles, marketing and communications and product strategy and development. Sandhya has also worked with B2B deal flow platforms, Naseba and IDE Global, involved in bringing together buyers and solution providers from across the world to engage in business investments in the real estate, healthcare and renewable energy domain. At IDE, she headed the Research and Production division and was instrumental in expanding their initiatives in Europe, Middle East, North Africa and Asia.

With 11 years of experience across different sectors and roles, Sandhya identifies herself as an intrapreneur and generalist. She has graduated with a Bachelor of Management Studies degree from St. Xaviers College, Mumbai. During her free time, Sandhya enjoys spending time with her family, friends, neighborhood dogs, and is always up for game nights and karaoke.

Has working with Elevar changed your perspective on things?

More than changed, it has certainly reinforced a long held belief that we simply cannot waste any more time in our endeavour to make real sustainable changes in the world and transform the lives of those from historically marginalized groups.

If you weren’t working at Elevar what would you be doing for a living?

I think I might have real promise to become a food critic. If not, then I may try singing for my supper.

Things you will be caught doing outside of work.

1) Earnest attempts to improve my guitaring prowess

2) Checking out the city’s newest food joints

3) Working out or at a game of badminton
