Our Founder

Breakthrough was founded in 2000 by Robin Paul, a former athlete who represented India at the World Athletic Championships and later on as a counsellor at the Olympics. His interactions and coaching with some of the world’s top sports personalities, has helped translate several team concepts from sports into corporate training. This led to the conception of Breakthrough, headquartered in Bangalore, India

Our Philosophy

The name Breakthrough finds its origin from a tree that has broken through a 60/40 feet rock and still stands tall on the Breakthrough campus. According to arborists, the tree is nearly a century old. The rock, which is a metaphor of a challenging situation from the seed’s perspective, is today the biggest source of strength for the tree. Without a trunk of its own, the tree now relies on the rock for strength and support.
