About Take Pride

TAKEPRIDE is the marquee annual event of Yi. Over the years, we have created a microcosm of exceptional minds to engage and inspire the youth of India. Every year, we see a congregation of more than 800 Young Indians – leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals who are the agents of change. Yes, they are the future of the Nation on whose shoulders lie the responsibility of taking India ahead toward progress. Beginning with a broadminded and inclusive outlook and a strong will to turn words into action, TAKEPRIDE is all about working together for a better India.



About Take Pride 2019

UNBOX presents an out-of-the-box learning opportunity. You will find yourself being spoilt for choice as you scramble to make the most of the two days in Goa. Along with interesting lectures on ‘Blockchain Concepts’ and ‘Start-up Investing’, you’ll really enjoy the breakout sessions and beach sports!

UNLEARN is a way to assimilate into the ‘school of life’ as multi-disciplinary experiences shared by Subject Matter Experts usher in refreshing ideas and perspectives! Yes, they challenge conventional thought processes. Who said failure cannot come with learning? Why do we have to only have mainstream learning sessions? How about a holistic way forward? Yi is itself a school for so many of us, isn’t it?! Of course we can have a back-to-school dress code for one of the days as we ‘unlearn’!!

UNLEASH your ‘youth power’ by standing together, standing tall! Hailing from different geographies—united as Indians—Yi is all about members who know that they can be the change they wish to see. It is a collective march together into the New Year. Well, did anyone also hear about a party on the beach? Come, let’s meet at GOA!!
