This session explored the opportunities for collaboration between Indian corporations and incubators in building up the pipeline of investment-ready social enterprises. It addressed two broad topics: first, what are some of the major challenges that investors see affecting the enterprise pipeline; and second, what are the kinds of resources – financial, human, experiential – that corporations and incubators can bring to the table to help overcome these challenges.
