Jagirti Yatra – annual train journey across India for social entrepreneurs
Thursday, January 2, 2014
The programme aims to foster entrepreneurship among young Indians, who apply by the thousands to climb aboard. It was developed by Shashank Mani, a senior executive at PricewaterhouseCoopers, to support what he calls “enterprise-led development”. During its 9,000-kilometre long journey, which begins in Mumbai and spans two weeks, the train calls at a dozen cities where the 450 participants meet with successful social entrepreneurs.
