Hi friends! Good morning. After founding GBG Ahmedabad in May 2013, I, along with the team, was blessed to organize great events in #Ahmedabad as part of the community. We organized 40+ events until May 2016 when I wished to pass on my responsibility to someone who could continue managing the community and drive it to a level where we remained, in Top 10 worldwide in 2013, 2014 and 2015 in a row.

We were fortunate to be ranked as No 1, worldwide, in our first ...year by Google in 2013 across 160 chapter at that time.

We were successful in building bright careers of many of our members who have grown tremendously. We launched many of the hidden gems as Speakers in our events. We helped many businesses network with like-minded and grow. Success stories from our community have been a great return gift to the society and Google.

In past 2 years I've approached many suitable persons who could replace me and take charge.

I have been in touch with Satyen Gadhvi since the launch of our community in May 2013. He became GBG Ahmedabad member and had been attending various events thereafter and interacting with me regularly.

Satyenbhai took bit more interest in learning various things from me in-depth since last 6 months. He further agreed to take formal charge and thus I had recommended him to Google.

Today, I wish to inform that Mr. Satyen Gadhvi has been formally appointed as the new Manager of GBG Ahmedabad after due diligence and formal interviewing by global authorities of GBG. He will form his team and continue running the chapter with fresh and interesting activities in forthcoming days.

IMPORTANT: If any of you are interested to be part of the new team of GBG Ahmedabad then do PM him immediately.

With this, I'm now officially the Founder and Ex-Manager of GBG Ahmedabad 😁 and will continue to guide and mentor the new team as and when required.

It was a great moment for me to be with you all, taking the chapter forward and driving it to new heights. Thank you all for being part of my journey at GBG Ahmedabad.

1. I wish to thank personally Sunil Rao and Paul Ravindranath G for appointing me as the founder and providing me a great initial support in building this chapter.
2. I wish to thank personally Uttam Kumar Tripathi and Paresh Mayani for helping me found this community.
3. I wish to thank personally Erica Hanson, AB Singh and Marcus Foon for their continuous support in the current years.
4. Special thanks to the co-organizers Ketan Raval, Tejas Mehta and Kinjal Desai for their support.
5. Special thanks to Ashwin Joshi and Team Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship, IIM Ahmedabad for providing us venue in kind for our events.

Last, but not least, I wish to thank all my current and previous team members who have been a great support to me and the community.
