Significant market opportunity exists to develop sustainable solutions to social and economic difficulties facing low-income communities at the Bottom of the Pyramid (BoP). Yet, providing relevant products and services to BoP markets is often complex. There is a serious shortage of social venture incubators to provide the capacity building and incubation support needed at idea/pilot/test stage, both in India as a whole and particularly in the low income states.
About the initiative
Innovative Ventures and Technologies for Development (INVENT) is a joint collaboration of the Technology Development Board (TDB), Government of India and the Department for International Development (DFID), Government of the United Kingdom. INVENT aims to make a positive social impact by providing incubation support to technology-oriented start-ups. Through INVENT program, SIDBI Innovation and Incubation Centre (SIIC) at IIT Kanpur aims to incubate 40 start-ups working in social enterprise in the states of Uttarpradesh and Chhattisgarh.
About the Wokshop
The workshop has the Theme of “Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship”. It will be conducted jointly by SIIC, IIT Kanpur and SSTC Business Incubator. As the state of Chhattisgarh is a true representative of Rural India, with a larger section of its masses living in villages, our vision with SSTC Business Incubator is to Contribute Significantly to the development of Rural Chhattisgarh, which would be the primary objective of this workshop.
