“Last year, we received close to 500 applications for 25 odd positions in about fifteen partner social enterprises. Students from some of the best institutes in India like IIMs, IITs, NITs, St. Stephens, St.Xavier’s etc. were a part of this program. These students demonstrated significant impact in their work, which drew a lot of appreciation from our partner organizations. Our placement process is respected a lot in these organizations and we try our best to make it a win-win situation for both the organizations and the students.”, said Yashveer Singh, Co-Founder of National Social Entrepreneurship Forum
