The Australia India Business Council’s (AIBC) Young Leader’s chapter recently hosted an event in Sydney. The event was attended by several young entrepreneurs and professionals. Among those present at the event was Amit Tewari, founder of wholly plant based burger joint ‘Soul Burger‘.
Amit who is a trained doctor left medicine to establish Soul Burger which now has four outlets in Sydney. He said that he struggled with the concept of slaughterhouses so transitioned his restaurant away from animal products entirely. He is also the founder of ‘Plant Taqueria‘ which delivers plant based Mexican food.

One of the speakers at the event was Michael Rees from Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) who floored everyone with his Hindi speaking skills. Michael is soon going to New Delhi for his posting and hence decided to learn the language.
Other speakers at the event included Partnership Manager from UNICEF Australia, Saadgi Rajani, and CEO of Xtreme Group, Hemant Babbar.
