The NASSCOM Social Innovation Honours (NSIH) celebrate innovations that demonstrate exceptional use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for social development. The Foundation pioneered the Honours in 2008 to recognize and showcase such innovations that aim to impact the society in a positive manner. The Honours recognizes social innovation across public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

NASSCOM Social Innovation Honours provides an excellent opportunity to the winners to interact and network with the leaders of the IT industry alongwith offering a platform to join the network of the past winners for access to additional training, funding and networking opportunities. In it's 5th edition now, the foundation has launched NASSCOM Social Innovation Honours 2013 in partnership with Genpact.
