It is ironic that while India houses possible the highest number of social entrepreneurs in the world, social innovation & entrepreneurship itself forms a deplorable mention in the course curriculum in most academic institutions in our country. Curriculum aside, very few colleges in India have societies dedicated to promoting social entrepreneurship and development through enterprise on campus and creating a class of socially responsible citizens. National Social Entrepreneurship Forum (NSEF) aims to open centers of excellence throughout the nation to bridge this talent inequity in the sector by inspiring, training and providing mentorship to students to incline them towards the responsible business and developmental sector.NSEF is organizing a 2 day workshop on Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Bangalore on the 9th and 10th of July.

Few of the speakers for the event are Ramji Raghvan, Founder & Chairman, Agastya International Foundation, Mr. Ashwin Naik, CEO, Vaatsalya, Mr. Naveen Jha, CEO, Deshpande Foundation, Mr. Elango Ramaswamy, Village President Kuthambakkam, Bala Girisaballa, Director, Yahoo Entrepreneur Network, Mathew Jacob, Founder Idiom Design, Sean Blagsvelt, Founder, BabaJobs , Shanti Raghavan, Ashoka Fellow and Founder, Enable India, Ms. Poonam Bir Kasturi, Founder, Daily Dump and will span a wide spectrum of topics that will leave these young guns with inspiration, wisdom and will equip with techniques of becoming a social entrepreneur.
