Start Up!

Start Up!

As angel investors, we invest non-financial resources to launch and scale social enterprises. Our investments of time and expertise are geared to put ventures quickly on their feet and make them scale and capital ready. Though our investments are purely non-financial, Start Up! raises funds with the social entrepreneur to launch or scale her idea.

As an incubator,we offer immersive incubation services to seed or early-stage social entreprises. We also incubate incubators! Our incubation offerings are designed to

  • » Develop robust strategic, finance and execution capabilities in change models.
  • » Strengthen the impact quotient of early-stage social ventures.
  • » Build the resilience of entrepreneurs.


As consultants,we get excited about:

  • » Scaling social change models
  • » Developing the next generation of innovations for social enterprises and CSOs
  • » Assessing the impact of social change ideas and processes
  • » Putting change models on sustainability paths
  • » Engaging with social entrepreneurs through due diligence processes


Over the last four years, Start Up! has launched and scaled more than 12 social ventures (mostly hybrid) in the fields of education, livelihoods, primary health, financial inclusion and employability. We also serve as the knowledge and due diligence partners to the Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award – hosted by the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship and Jubilant Bhartia Foundation.
