CIIE.CO (Ahmedabad, GJ, India) 27 days ago

Program Overview

India is in the midst of an unprecedented digital transformation. With a billion-plus user on the Jan Dhan, Aadhar, Mobile (JAM) trinity, the shift to a digital, unified GST regime driving formalization of large swathes of the economy, and the government’s push to drive adoption of open-access and inclusive technologies around Aadhaar (such as UPI, eSign, eKYC and DigiLocker), we believe that the unseen majority of India – Bharat - will join the economic mainstream, creating vast opportunities for innovative ventures.

Through the Bharat Inclusion Initiative, we have created an end-to-end ecosystem to systematically train and nurture aspiring entrepreneurs looking to leverage these inclusive technologies to create sustainable, scalable solutions for Bharat’s problems, especially in the Financial Inclusion and Livelihoods/Skilling sectors. The Program integrates research and dissemination with entrepreneurship practice and training and includes activities such as research grants, research publications, EIRs, sprints, hackathons and accelerator programs, thereby creating a holistic environment to understand the specific needs of Bharat and design appropriate solutions for them.
