Many ifocus members include students, career aspiring/unemployed youth, working professional’s get-together to share their views and experiences about respective jobs.These insights help the budding professionals and career seekers to build stronger livelihoods by learning from the mistakes of others. Eminent personalities are invited to address the members to inculcate leadership qualities.
These meets are organized on the other Sundays of the month. Breakfast meets are meant for the youth /students to connect with experienced professionals and understand the practical aspects of their education. Eminent scholars, successful professionals, participate in these interactive sessions. Industry trends, current practices and about upcoming opportunities are discussed.
It is an initiative to support and encourage the youth towards self-employment. Mythree iFocus Trust members who have started their own ventures come together and meet in this club. Around 25 people gather on every Saturday to hone their networking skills and explore business opportunities. Case studies, issues from their personal business experiences are shared by the members to find solutions, opportunities and identify resource persons in these interactions. The objective is to create employment for others by encouraging self-employment.

M Suchindra Timmaji
Belief in passionate careers and positive lifestyles changed my perception towards my own life. Life for a failure seems to be very scattered and looks like all the doors are closed – my journey with ifocus started then when I was feeling the same. I do not hesitate to acknowledge that life has changed since then. All that I have learned from its ideology has helped to pave my own way for my success in all walks of my life . Where ever I had thought to make a mark – be it in my college activities or in my professional anchoring or in cracking interviews in one shot in 3 giant MNC’s – it was with one weapon called ‘ifocus’. Three word ideology of Samardhata-Samagrata-Bharateeyata helped in my spiritual development. All that I can say is it gave me a celebrity status at the age of 21.
Marketing Manager, Ola Cabs. IIM-C
“…the Idea of “Think Big” imparted to us at Ifocus Mission challenged my thought process and translated into securing me a seat at IIM Calcutta. In my opinion, both Ifocus and IIMC taught me the same thing i.e. the courage to take bold decisions. My internship and job interviews stand example to it, I was asked by all my seniors not to say in interview that I want to join my family business in the next 3-5 years as that could hamper my job opportunities. I took my own way and decided to say it and landed one of the most interesting and entrepreneurial oriented career opportunities at a highly rated & reputed start-up, Ola Cabs, as a Marketing Manager. Ifocus helped me develop a much broader thought process and think beyond the obvious.
