In India’s last decade there has been notable progress in sectors like education and healthcare, which has improved the quality of life for many of the country’s inhabitants. However, these achievements aside, more than 40% of the population still earn less than USD 1.25/day. This means that 480 million people live each day in a cycle of poverty, unable to realize their potential and drive India’s future forward.
To address this key economic and deveopment issue, India needs a thriving landscape of social entrepreneurs harnesing new and innovative ideas – such as solar energy or mobile technology – to change the status quo and realize India’s growth.
Although social entrepreneurs work tirelessly to move a high-impact idea or venture forward, they too need critical support – such as mentoring and funding – until they can reach financial and operational sustainability.
While Ennovent supports the ecosystem of social entrepreneurs, investors and experts to help them connect and create a collective impact, we also wanted to share with our readers, a great initiative from one of our partners – UnLtd India.
