Get ready for some impact jamming!

April 2015, New Delhi

Come join this jam that will utilize design thinking to create scalable solutions
for social enterprises that are solving pressing challenges in India.

Our participants will include individuals from a variety of backgrounds, spanning
the spectrum between corporates and social change drivers.

Our promise is to provide the participants with an understanding of the design thinking framework and intersperse creatives, leaders, and subject matter experts from our community during the solution design process. We will do this 'hands-on' by creating a viable solution that can be carried forward by the organizations who put up problems that need a solution.

The Vision

To drive a movement where individuals take personal responsibility to use their skills to contribute to the eradication of the pressing social challenges we face today.


A solution-driven impact jam to kickstart this movement, where real social enterprises find value in the end result.


To utilize your skills to come up with actionable solutions for organizations working to impact our community.

What we are Solving

Financial Inclusion

Financial inclusion or inclusive financing is the delivery of financial services at affordable costs to sections of disadvantaged and low-income segments of society, in contrast to financial exclusion where those services are not available or affordable.

Women's Empowerment

Women's empowerment refers to issues of gender equality in the workplace, marketplace, and community. The work in this domain also focuses on women's safety and health as key enablers to bridge the gender gap.
