Launched in 2015, the programme aims to provide a platform for startups to showcase innovations that can help solve some of the problems in the society.

As part of the six-month programme, 10 social impact startups from the country will be chosen and mentored towards building a sustainable social enterprise. They will be provided with technical and financial mentoring to build their applications.

“In the present day, we are witnessing a remarkable growth in the startup ecosystem. We believe that the programme will not only catalyse the constantly innovating ecosystem but will also help design thought process in the country,” said Nasscom Vice President (Industry Initiative) K.S.
