Our belief is that a dedicated environment fostering innovation will help in coming up with the ideas of tomorrow and beyond which can disrupt the pace of change based on mainstream thinking within this sector.

We help leading organizations design innovative, impactful interventions in their chosen area of development. We collaborate with reputed grassroots organizations to plan and implement these interventions and take them to scale.
