Shivani Sheldenkar

Hello, I’m Shivani. I’m currently enrolled as a law student.

In my academic career, I learned how important it is to be an effective leader and one of the best ways to do it is by establishing close connections with fellow students. And now as a Youth Leader, I'll be able to connect to a larger audience and gain skills and knowledge necessary to pursue education reform and community activities. I’m excited to raise IP awareness through this program!

Rudrabhishek Chauhan

Hi! I am Rudrabhishek Chauhan, currently enrolled in Law school.

Appearing for the IPTSE in 2019 was new to me but after I took it I became very interested in IP for my future. I fared well in the examination and wish to pursue IP as a career. With my strong interest in management as well, IP would definitely help me in the future.

Roshni Ravi

Hola! I’m R. Roshni and I am currently pursuing Doctor of Pharmacy.

Since I love to learn new things, I decided to participate as an IPTSE Youth Leader! I believe IP helps creators gain recognition for their inventions. There is a saying in Tamil- "Ulaginthalasiradha sol- Seyal", which means the world's best verb is action. I look forward to raising IP awareness among my peers!

Likhit Akotkar

Hello! I am Likhit Akotkar, a student of Pharmacy.

I believe that IP protection is critical to fostering innovation. The youth of our nation, possess some great and novel ideas, but usually their knowledge falls short on how to protect them. My role as a Youth Leader would be raising awareness from A to Z on IP! As a future pharmacologist I hope to develop novel approaches and models in my field.

Hi! I am Vitthal Salve, a final year B.Tech student.

As an engineering student, I know that knowledge of IP is critical in this field! IP helps protect our ideas but also promotes development and licensing in various industries. My role as a Youth leader helps me learn and network with innovators, students and other like-minded people.

After a successful stint with IPTSE last year, where I secured AIR 1, the next step was undoubtedly the Youth Leader Program. As a Youth Leader, I’m excited to interact with Industry experts and share information about IP in everyday life!

Sukarm Sharma

Hi, I'm Sukarm! IPTSE 2.0 AIR 2 in the School Category.

I'm an aspiring law student. As Intellectual Property Rights is the fastest growing legal field, I'm of the opinion that without strong IPRs, the incentive to innovate would be diminished, which is why it’s essential to our society.

Tejaswini NM

Hi, my name is Tejaswini NM. I’m a Biotech engineer currently enrolled in law school.

A final year student, I am passionate about environmental and social outreach. My role as a youth leader helps me generate awareness about idea protection and IP management. One day I aspire to have my own IP firm or academy to create the necessary awareness amongst all creators.

Poornima Gupta

Kunal Keshav

Hello! I’m Kunal, currently studying to be a marine engineer

I first learned about intellectual property rights in 2018, while preparing for IPTSE. People often assume that IPRs are only meant for artists, but it is equally important to someone making either a case study or a vlog. IP knowledge is critical in today’s world.

Over the course of my internships, I became interested in IP and have also drafted IP agreements.

Intellectual property rights have been my favourite area of study and I have been exploring this space since law school began. Through the Youth Leaders program, I will not only raise awareness about IPR but will also give my legal career a boost.
