The 2010 Khemka Forum on Social EntrepreneurshipShital Shah
ThinkChange India is pleased to once again act as a media partner with the Khemka Foundation for the upcoming Khemka Forum on Social Entrepreneurship.
The Khemka Foundation’s annual forums on social entrepreneurship are designed to create an ecosystem, a community of sorts for all the players in the field. Every year, social entrepreneurs, investors, academics, government representatives and thought leaders gather under a ‘big tent’ to share their thoughts on scaling social impact.
Under the overarching theme of ‘scaling innovations,’ participants will examine the ‘how-to’s’ that enable ‘low cost, high quality solutions’ get to scale. This year’s Forum is November 11 and 12, at the Indian School of Business in Hyderabad. Registration is by invite only.
