Varun Agarwal, a serial entrepreneur who runs 3 startups at the age of 25 and has a very interesting story himself and recently launched his first book, “How I Braved Anu Aunty and Co-Founded A Million Dollar Company.” The book tells the story of a young entrepreneur who broke out of the corporate rat race to chase his dreams.

Having seen the struggle himself, he has partnered with Milaap, an NGO, to help entrepreneurs across India. Milaap is unique and transparent online model of micro-financing engaging everyday individuals and organizations to lend to the working poor in India. Milaap raises funds to help the poor in India get access to sanitation, clean drinking water, education and livelihood generation opportunities.

As a helping hand, Varun has come forward with a kind gesture of giving away signed copies of his first book for free in order to raise funds for budding rural entrepreneurs. Varun is giving away this book for every Rs.1000 loan.

Here’s how you can do some good and get a copy as well:

STEP1: sign up here

STEP2: make a contribution

STEP3: fill in your details

And the book will be shipped. Check out more such stories about doing good: The Better India and Wonder of Words.
