Finalists will be selected following an intensive search and selection process including expert reviews and site visits. The winner will be announced at a ceremony just before the start of the India Economic Summit in November 2011 (13th-15th) in New Delhi.



Jubilant Bhartia Foundation joined hands with the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship to launch the Social Entrepreneur of the Year (SEOY) Award in India.

Social Entrepreneurs are innovators who implement practical and sustainable solutions to address challenges in numerous areas including health, education, environment, access to technology and job creation. Whether they are set up as for profit entities, hybrid social ventures or not for profit organizations, their primary focus is transformational social change. Social entrepreneurs develop a revenue stream through the sale of products, services, fees or develop key partnerships to achieve sustainability.


The Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship is a sister organization of the World Economic Forum. The Foundation provides unique regional and global platforms to promote social entrepreneurship as a key element to advancing societies and addressing social problems innovatively and effectively. It also fosters a close-knit community of social entrepreneurs for idea exchange and replication of best practices.


Jubilant Bhartia Foundation established in 2007, is the social wing of the Jubilant Bhartia Group. It focuses on conceptualizing and implementing the Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives for the group. The Jubilant Bhartia Foundation’s activities include various community development work, health care programs, cultural & sports events, an environment preservation initiative, vocational training, women empowerment and educational activities.
