iPitch this year wants to help social enterprises ‘Remodel for Resilience’. The investing landscape and support for social enterprises has dramatically changed and will remain unsettled. iPitch wants to rally like minded investors, make it easier for them to discover and fund innovative social enterprises.
We recognize that these are uncertain times and in-person pitches are ruled out. We want to ensure that the virtual pitch is not intimidating and does not become a limiting factor. Over 10 days, iPitch intends to have coaching sessions for entrepreneurs and will ensure that our processes are inclusive.
Villgro and our investment partners are looking for social enterprises working on:
- Generating livelihood & micro-entrepreneurship opportunities
- Maternal & Child Healthcare, Infectious & Non-Communicable Diseases
- Improving productivity, reducing inputs in farming & increasing resilience of farmers
- Accelerating the inclusion of women in the workforce
Over the last three years, iPitch has received 3000+ applications, funded 23 startups and deployed ₹74.4 million.
