Social Alpha, an initiative supported by Tata Trusts, is a 3-tier ecosystem architecture designed to nurture start-up teams through their lab to market journey. This architecture connects the innovation and investment ecosystems and allows for an efficient mechanism for allocating resources throughout the life-cycle stages of an enterprise. It caters to the untapped need for enabling high risk, high impact technological interventions that have the potential to create disruptive and irreversible impact. By combining the intent of philanthropy and the operating model of venture investing, we believe that significant societal value can be created.
This is being achieved through partnerships with academia, government, foundations, astute individuals and organizations, top-notch management and technology institutions in India and abroad that work collaboratively, pitching in resources, and facilitating participation, for the success of these social entrepreneurs.
