With a population over one billion, the challenges that India faces are numerous, and the state is not necessarily prepared or equipped to solve all of these problems. New solutions to bridge the gaps are developing within local communities and are being led by leaders with innovative solutions and big dreams to take their models to the masses. These social entrepreneurs, passionate leaders driven by the urge to create meaningful change, are developing new ways to solve some of these problems.
This spring, Beyond Profit launched a large-scale survey of social enterprises and the people who lead them in India. The survey was designed to better understand who these social entrepreneurs are, and learn more about their business structure, financial viability, challenges and their core values and motivation to work in this rewarding, but often challenging field.
The results are fascinating. The data reveals the profile of social entrepreneurs in India, the time of life that they decide to take on the role of “changemaker,” the path that led them to take the leap into this space, and the challenges they see ahead. And we also explore the way their enterprises are financed, and determine where there are still funding gaps that the right investors may be able to fill.
