What's Up with Mahindra Rise This Season?

What's Up with Mahindra Rise This Season?

Wednesday October 10, 2012 , 2 min Read

An initiative by Mahindra to propel innovation and entrepreneurship in India, 'Spark the Rise' was launched in August last year. The initiative was taken to provide innovators, entrepreneurs and change agents with a platform to showcase their work and connect with like-minded people to amplify their efforts. The winners from the first season were announced in April 2012 and the campaign has generated a lot of good will across the nation.

So, what exactly is Rise?

Rise is a call to action. It’s the challenger spirit that leads us to build ourselves better lives. The thirst for a brighter future is something shared by people around the world. Spark the Rise is a unique online platform for change-makers across India to connect with one another, collaborate and exchange ideas, procure volunteers and donors, and to compete for monthly grants from Mahindra. Submit a “Spark” – a Project or Idea that aims to drive positive change – and work with the Spark the Rise community to make it a reality!

This year, building on the platform that has been created, Spark the Rise would be on a grander scale and more innovations would be brought to the fore. On this road towards recognizing these endeavours, hundreds of amazing stories and projects come up that are worthy of mention and a wider audience. We, at YourStory completely support the efforts being made by Mahindra Rise and hence have announced the launch of a new section which will be dedicated to stories of these people who have risen up to the occasion and have stood for something. We'll be bringing you all the stories, news and updates from Mahindra Rise.

More on the Rise Website and stay tuned for updates!
