This week Tata announced a social enterprise challenge in association with the Indian Institue of Management on Calcutta. According to two websites the challenge’s aim to help identify and support India’s most promising social enterprises and will invite both for-profit and not-for-profit business plans that create a sustainable and measurable social impact.
The business plans will be judged critically by India’s most renowned social entrepreneurs, business leaders, social venture capitalists, foundations and academicians. An extensive mentorship program will be launched to help social enterprises refine their business models and connect to India’s preeminent social entrepreneurs.
The two websites where this was announced were http://startups.in and http://www.techsangam.com. The http://startups.in can be read here and the http://www.techsangam.com can be read here. However there is no forwarding link on to a CHallenge website on either of these announcements (and the Artha team found no other announcement on the Internet). We suggest that readers monitor these websites or check back in on the Artha news roll as we’ll publish more information should be fin it.
