Ashoka Changemakers is proud to announce its partnership with Sankalp Forum that will bring its community from South Asia preferred access to the annual Sankalp Summit, along with exclusive Investor-Entrepreneur Clinic and a Mentoring Pitstop, hosted simultaneously alongside the Summit.
The annual Sankalp Summit is one of Asia’s largest collaborative platforms to bring together social enterprises, impact investors, policy makers, academicians, and other market makers. Initiated in 2009 with the vision of catalyzing impact investments into social enterprises globally, the forum today has evolved into a community of over 350 social enterprises, over 300 investors and 300 sector stakeholders.
Sankalp’s 4 key round-the-year services are designed to address scale-up challenges that social enterprises face regularly i.e. Access to Finance, Capacity Building, Knowledge and Talent Gap. In 3 years, over 150 social enterprises have benefited from our services.
Apart from programmatic diversification, Sankalp in 2012 will expand to include path-breaking models from South East Asia. This year, the summit will also delve deeper into the evolution of urban business models in South Asia, and what it means for under-served urban markets.
Sankalp’s key success also lies in sourcing a strong deal flow pipeline year on year, through the Sankalp Awards. Vetted by the best investment houses globally, 30 investible, high-impact enterprises from India and South East Asia will be showcased at the forum. The annual Summit that witnesses over 700 participants will be held from April 11-13, at Taj Land’s End, Mumbai, this year. The agenda for the Summit can be viewed here.
