Running a social enterprise incubator can be lonely. While there are many opportunities for social entrepreneurs to learn from each other, there are very few opportunities for managers of social enterprise incubators to learn from each other and incubatees and partners to dialogue on common issues.


This programme will support you to: 

  • Share and develop your knowledge of social enterprises and their context in India

  • Discuss live examples to deepen your understanding of the realities of running and being part of a social enterprise incubator, through peer learning

  • Interact and exchange experiences with incubators, incubatees and others who share goals of supporting sustainable social impact, providing an opportunity for collaboration and co-incubation



(By invitation only)

Social enterprise incubators and social entrepreneurs - including the ones that are currently getting support from iSEED Ecosystem players including Department of science and technology, British Council, Ambedkar University incubator, and TISS incubator.
