The Builder's Foundation is an effort to empower the next generation of nation builders in India.


Shakti Goap was a pioneer in fostering builder culture in India, and he truly epitomized the 'Never Stop Building' spirit through his life's work at Devfolio and Fold. His message was simple -

"It doesn't matter which part of the world you're born in, doesn't matter whether you went to an IIT, some unknown college or even not at all — if you are curious and passionate about building things and put in the hard work in the right direction; you'll succeed sooner or later in life."

In Shakti's memory, the Builder's Foundation will help underprivileged, curious, and motivated young builders from India who can contribute towards the development of a better nation (more jobs, better healthcare, improved education system, and more). The Foundation will initially be supported through revenue generated from 2586 Labs.
