Vision 2020: Social Innovation Hubs across India
To build an ecosystem that nurtures innovation and entrepreneurship, we aim to establish a nationwide network of 20 hubs of social innovation that will offer mentorship, technical assistance, investment advisory and partnership support to promising, ready-to-scale social businesses.
Here is a list of the hubs established so far:
- Nizamabad, Telangana (Kakatiya)
- Raigad, Maharashtra
- Varanasi, UP (Ek Soch Sandbox)
- Madurai, Tamilnadu
- Bhubaneshwar, Odisha
Moving ahead, we are determined to make steady progress on our mission of establishing social hubs across India.
Further, we have also launched the AFI Patrons program to acquaint and involve more entrepreneurs, investors and influencers with AFI. Under this program, donors can contribute towards a social impact idea and help it see the light of day.
