The world’s first business platform of its kind, DLC will focus on knowledge exchange, lifestyle guidance and social responsibility while building a support ecosystem for leaders globally.

Being a first-generation entrepreneur, Jimmy strongly believes that modern leaders, especially in the post pandemic world, will benefit greatly from the knowledge and experiences from global leaders. His vision for DLC is to create an exclusive and secure global community of leaders that will help each other evolve from a life of success to a life of significance.

More about DLC, in Jimmy Mistry’s words

Mistry informed the media that DLC has been launched on an investment of INR 15 cr, and it has announced a first round of investment, whereby it seeks INR 50 crore, with four investors having already expressed keenness of intent. DLC has given the first round a 3-month window to be completed. Right now, it has a total of 100 employees and enablers working for it, and the workforce is likely to double three months from now, with the headcount outside India expected to reach 45 in the period.

DLC will welcome professionals, leaders and entrepreneurs as members, and will provide each member an array of helpful and enriching experiences by matching each member with a forum comprising a mix of reputed leaders and domain experts, along with the paying DLC members including young leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals. The matching will be a hand-picked affair to provide members the maximum benefit through interactions and more within the forum and through an array of content, and more. “The forum memberships will be locked for life,” Mistry said.

The cost of one membership a year is USD4000 (approximately INR 3 Lakh). A waitlist for memberships, opened just a few days back, has elicited more than 50 requests from across the world.

Jimmy Mistry, Founder and Chairman of Della Leaders Club, said, “After designing for some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, corporate professionals, celebrities and socialites over the last 25 years, I observed that they were hungry to learn and stay ahead of the curve. We live in a volatile world and I realised that leaders, across industries, need a support system that will empower them. This platform goes beyond just networking and focuses on knowledge development along with community outreach.”
