Impact Startup Support (ISS) Initiative Launched in India

Aspire Impact, a social enterprise focused on impact leadership and ecosystem development in the social and environmental impact space, today announced its collaboration with Impact Hub, the world’s leading network focused on building entrepreneurial communities for impact at scale. They launched the Impact Startup Support (ISS) initiative in India as they unveiled their inaugural survey report titled ‘India – An Impact Start Up Nation’ highlighting the key challenges and opportunities for impact-focused start-ups in the current ecosystem, at the Resurgence TiECon Delhi-NCR event. The ISS is a first-of-its-kind program for India, which will offer training and support to hundreds of incubators and accelerators, giving the impact start-up ecosystem the much-needed impetus especially, in challenging times post-Covid.

Amit Bhatia, Founder of Aspire Impact and Aspire Circle, spoke about the ‘much-needed’ collaboration saying, “Our partnership with Impact Hub will add capabilities and resilience to India’s 500+ incubators and accelerators, connecting them with a global peer network in 100+ cities across 60+ countries, world-class impact training and infrastructure, impact measurement, and, access to impact finance, transforming India into an Impact Startup nation.”
