“Our success would not have been possible without the relentless efforts of our teams. I’m delighted that we are in a position to offer significant wealth creation opportunities to those who have joined us on our mission to provide an excellent education to every child. We have also included our Alumni in the Liquidation Plan because they continue to remain ambassadors of LEAD,” says Sumeet Mehta, co-founder & CEO, LEAD.
