The backbone of the ADI Foundation is Adil Adi, a man who truly values the word “Family” – he has a passion for being inclusive and cultivating a feeling of family with everyone he meets. The catalysts for this passion are personal tragedies that he has transformed into driving the quality of life for global citizens.
In his early 20’s, while studying in the United States, Adil lost his young mother to breast cancer and his young father to a fatal heart attack within a matter of 3 months in India. This tragic event had a life changing impact on him, as he was the only child and was left with no other immediate family. After completing his Masters of Business Administration and working as a technical engineer for 8 years (to demonstrate a technology background), he founded WorldLink in 1998 to focus on technology transformation in the enterprise.
After starting with 1 employee and scaling WorldLink to a global company that services the world’s most innovative companies, Adi and his family launched the Adi Foundation to provide opportunities for those who need it most. The Foundation maintains the same passion, entrepreneurial spirit, and sense of family that Adi has espoused starting those many years ago.
