The Future – Building a Social Innovation Platform
We Need Bridges Between Societies
The Deshpande Foundation has come a long way, but we still have a way to go. To achieve lasting social impact requires bridging the gap between the societies where ideas thrive to the regions most in need.
A Social Innovation Platform
The Deshpande Foundation is building a Social Innovation Platform that will allow global innovators to pilot new ideas, refine models and approaches and build sustainable solutions with the potential for national scale.
A Living Laboratory
Our work thus far has created a solid ecosystem with several major strengths:
Building Scalable, Sustainable Solutions
The Social Innovation Platform will leverage these resources to test, trial and build scalable, sustainable solutions to address the challenges of the bottom billions. By bringing in the discipline of the product development process to the passion of the social sector, we will build a structured and repeatable approach to accelerate new ideas to create significant social impact.
Partner With Us
We cannot do it alone. To build this future will require a collaborative approach with world-class ideas; shared experience and learning; global, national and corporate partnerships; and novel business and investment models. We look forward to working with you help shape this future creating scalable, sustainable social impact.
