Incubators play a critical role in nurturing start-ups and social enterprises. Although there are approximately 200 incubators in India, the boom in start-ups and social enterprises has fueled a demand for incubator support with estimates placing the demand at 1,000 incubators by 2020.
In addition to recent Government priorities such as Startup and Make in India promotion, the recent Companies Act (2014) permits funding to Government approved Incubators as a CSR activity. These factors combined make a strong case for corporate participation in supporting incubators and enabling social enterprises.
In light of this, Villgro and NGOBox will host the following sessions that aim to bring to focus the journey and impact of social entrepreneurs, and how incubators and corporates can help them succeed. The India CSR Summit 2017 provides an ideal platform as the largest forum for CSR thought leadership and partnerships by setting the context for discussing various aspects of incubation support to enterprises, especially, technology-related ventures.
