The word Antarprerana originates from Sanskrit [/अन्त:प्रेरणा/] meaning inner-motivation and was borrowed by the French to define an entrepreneur as 'someone who manages and undertakes'. At Antarprerana, we are continuously supporting each other to inquire into our own Antarprerana and see if and how it resonates with our purpose.
