The AFI Forum is the annual flagship event of Action For India, bringing 100 hand-picked social innovators together with 100 influencers, including donors, IAS officers, technology leaders and impact investors to help those entrepreneurs scale their organizations. The Forum aims to benefit social entrepreneurs working in the following six sectors – agriculture, education, energy, healthcare, financial inclusion and livelihoods.
Since its inception five years ago, this unique, invite-only gathering of 100 social entrepreneurs and 100 key influencers has been a launch-pad for fruitful collaborations in the social enterprise space. The 2017 Forum: “Replace with the theme for the 2017 Forum ”, will focus on commitment to actions to help scale some of the most promising solutions addressing India’s challenges today!
The Forum serves the following purposes:
- Sharing of ideas, inspiration and best practices by icons such as Sam Pitroda as well as successful social entrepreneurs
- Access to financial, governmental, human & intellectual capital resources
- Interaction with mentors who can provide business process advice and long-term support to scale
- Access to technology companies that can offer products and services
Selected SEs will also receive continued consulting support to scale their impact as a part of AFI’s SEAS (Social Entrepreneurs Advisory Service)
