Dhiren Talpade, 38
Camping and outdoor training expert. Lawyer by education, Talpade found his heart beat around nature.
Dhiren Tapade started Jumpstart Outdoors LLP in 2011 out of a love for nature. While he graduated in physics and went on to get an LLB degree, his love for the outdoors began when his father taught him horse riding, swimming and rifle shooting.

He upgraded to Wilderness First Responder in 2010. At Jumpstart, he fuels his passion for the environment by conducting camps for kids and adults.
