how we do it


We look to work with our underlying investees as partners and believe that support should go much beyond financial support only. In addition to grant support, we tend to engage with founders and teams quite actively using a proprietary value-add framework . The “GAPS” framework seeks to address potential gaps and provide a structured approach to “value-add” in specific areas covering Governance, Alliances and Partnerships, Processes and Systems and Strategy.

Therefore, under this approach our engagement areas cover:


  • Insights on how best a non profit can evolve to create hybrid models to raise outside capital to self-sustain
  • Insights on the creation and composition of an advisory board
  • Insights on organisation building
  • Conversation with Founders on vision and scale

Fund raising:

  • Access and introductions to our network of friends and well-wishers

Creating Synergies:

  • Cross-pollination of ideas within our investees to create and leverage synergies
  • Inputs and insights on advocacy strategies with state government to amplify impact
