The May 17, 2011 post (Boiling the social enterprise ocean) provides the next level drill-down into the kind of social enterprises TechSangam will be covering. Categories of focus include agriculture, rural markets, financial inclusion, education, health, rural tourism, water, sanitation, and off-grid energy.

About the Blogger (Vishy Kuruganti)

I’m an engineering alumnus of Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra and University of Houston. I’ve held a series of technology leadership roles at Navteq/Nokia, Yahoo and a few startups (Graspr, Online Anywhere) before returning to India in Aug 2008. After a senior leadership stint with Adobe Bangalore and 20 years of experience in the technology/Internet domain, I started this blog with a focus on social enterprises and social entrepreneurs in India.

The Rest

Inspiration for this blog came from Arthur C. Clarke’s Evolution of the human race.

My personal blog (The Art of Returning to India..and Staying Put) chronicles my return to India after 16 years in America – this post from Jun 2008 is relevant background for why I started the TechSangam blog.

SACH Impact

Greetings from Subhash Chandra Foundation!

This is to bring to your kind notice that Subhash Chandra Foundation, the philanthropic initiative of Rajya Sabha MP and Essel Group Chairman, Subhash Chandra has launched ‘SACH Impact’ Incubator, in partnership with LetsEndorse, to support early-stage social ventures aspiring to solve the problems of millions of Indians.

Two annual cohorts of resolute social entrepreneurs shall be constituted every year, with each one working on one of the 8 focal areas (Education, Healthcare, Clean Energy, Agriculture, Inclusion, Waste Management, Livelihood, WASH), aligning with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The programme aims to equip them with market access for pilots, financial support to do so, necessary mentorship, knowledge networks & more, to take their solutions to the next level and prepare them to scale and serve the large Indian population.
Ventures with already developed testable versions of their innovative product/technology/software or those which have just begun conducting pilot tests on-the-ground and have the potential to make transformational impact on the society can apply online through this link: before 25th June, 2018.

We would be keen to know if you would like to publish this announcement on your platform and encourage the relevant readership to consider this programme. That would be very helpful. We shall share further details as we hear from you!

Thanks and have a great day.
