Transforming India Initiative is a 2 year fellowship programme that will equip you to establish enterprises of scale that will solve the most pressing challenges that are facing the country today. Even as you create a successful and rewarding life for yourself, you will benefit the marginalised and work towards transforming India into a country where everyone has access to a decent life. If you are someone who does not want to settle for the ordinary, TII is the place for you.
The programme starts with the six-month long facilitated learning module.
Here, all the fellows receive the basic skills, exposure and mindsets required for them to start their work on the ground equipped with confidence and capacity to solve the challenges of the enterprise where they are placed.
Following this, the fellows will be placed with an enterprise for 18 months.
Here they will learn through practice, reflection, discussions with their peer mentor and online learning modules.
On completion of the programme, a majority of the fellows will be expected to establish and run their own enterprise. The remaining will either work on incubating other enterprises or work with organisations in the social enterprise ecosystem.
