Sankalp Forum is launching a free online course on business modelling and fundraising for 40 social entrepreneurs with sharp ideas, business plans and/or pilots. Top 5 graduates stand the chance to become semi-finalists at Sankalp Awards 2014, and will also get the opportunity to pitch for incubation support.
Starting on Aug 12, 2013, the Course will offer guidance on how to develop and refine a business model, and how to present it to potential investors.
Online Course in Business Modelling
Designed in partnership with leading social enterprise incubator Villgro, and successful social entrepreneurs fromMilk Mantra, Saraplast and Vaatsalya, the Course will be delivered primarily through short insightful videos from experts and successful entrepreneurs. Participants will also receive guidance via phone and email from mentors with early-stage investment backgrounds.
Structured into 8 parts, it is recommended that participants go through one part each week, but they may choose a faster or slower pace – as they prefer. By October 15th, our mentors will select the top 5 course graduates who will get a chance to become Sankalp Awards 2014 Semi-Finalists* and also get an exclusive opportunity to pitch to incubators and angel investors in Mumbai on October 28th.
*Only those that meet the Sankalp Awards criteria (for-profit registered enterprises, between 6 months to 5 years in operations with annual revenues less than Rs. 10 crores) will become Semi-Finalists; but all the top 5 course participants will be invited to pitch to incubators and angel investors.
