Spark the Rise is Back!

Posted By: Rise Team|Dated: September 17, 2012

In 2011, Spark the Rise empowered 48 innovators with grants, and enabled thousands more to join the movement to help India Rise.

This year, Spark the Rise returns with a heightened sense of commitment, with more partnerships, more resources and more support to help innovators, entrepreneurs and volunteers to drive positive change.

In 2012, Spark the Rise will enable change makers to drive positive change in India through:

  • Funding: more grants per round will allow more people to kick off their projects or take them to the next level
  • Training: intensive workshops by industry experts to help develop a solid growth model and create deeper social impact
  • Mentorship: pairing with an experienced mentor who will provide additional support, coaching and network access

If that’s not enough, Spark the Rise will be coming to a city near you!  With roadshows around the country, we will be helping connect social entrepreneurs and innovators to one another.

Join the movement, and help us spark the change!
