empowering the real problem solvers

India’s economic growth is among the most unequal worldwide. the Covid-19 pandemic has set us back in the war against poverty by a decade or more. the need for innovation to solve problems at the base of the pyramid has never been greater.

like other sectors, the development sector too must be disrupted by startups. a new breed of audacious nonprofit founders who have innovation, speed and scale as their DNA are at the core of the systems change required.

we back such disruptors whose breakthrough work will take us closer to the vision of poverty-free India.

our theory of change

we believe that top talent is the key to unlock innovation, new philanthropy and public policy and deliver disproportionate impact. our purpose, therefore, is to nudge and nurture top talent to work on India’s most critical challenges.
