This conference, the first of its kind in India, was co-hosted by the non-profit Action For India (AFI) and two government entities: the Centre for Innovations in Public Systems (CIPS) and the Government of India, Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY). The goal of the conference was to encourage collaboration between government officials and social enterprise leaders, in order to scale up the benefits of social innovation in India. Both cross-sectoral and sector-specific problems and solutions were explored. The sectors represented were: water, sanitation and health; education; energy; agriculture; and livelihood and financial inclusion. The conference was intended to be a ‘kick-off’ event to begin a long-term initiative to foster collaboration between government, social enterprises and non-profits.
