From time immemorial, there have always been a few individuals who have risen above mere personal gain, to devote their lives to solving pressing social and environmental ills plaguing society. They did this by employing innovative new methods that were hitherto unknown, or known but not applied. Going by that definition, the Father of our nation,Mahatma Gandhi, can be considered as one of India’s first social entrepreneurs.

“Start-ups are more than commercial success stories.
They are powerful examples of Social Innovation”


Social innovation:


  • Is the practice of using creativity to develop solutions which improve the well being of people &
  • It promotes collaborative action, creative thinking & innovative action to address social need.
  • It uses the experience & insight of those impacted & those concerned to come up with new
    solutions & approaches.
  • It is a way of making change. How you make that change is as important as what change you
    want to bring about.
  • It can help to address local, national & global challenges in our world.
