Innovate. Incubate. Accelerate

Who are we

We imagine an India where entrepreneurs and innovators can access the resources they need, to create deep and irreversible social impact, by addressing the issues of poverty, underdevelopment and inequity and improve quality of life, especially for the underprivileged and deprived. At Social Alpha, we believe that entrepreneurship has the potential to bring about a positive change in the life of masses. We search for entrepreneurs and innovators who are on a 'mission to create social, economic and environmental impact'​ and support them through their 'lab to market'​ journey, as they create compelling solutions to fight poverty and address India’s intractable development sector challenges. ​​

Social Alpha is a 3-tier ecosystem architecture designed to nurture  high impact teams through their start-up journey. This architecture connects the innovation and investment ecosystems and allows for an effective mechanism for allocating resources to mission driven teams  throughout their  entrepreneurial progression. Social Alpha stack is focused on catalysing innovation, enterprise incubation, capital access and growth hacking, in order to address the challenges of market failure, mission drift, suboptimal scale and financial sustainability.

Foundation for Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship (FISE) forms the core of Social Alpha architecture. FISE promotes innovation and entrepreneurship  through a nationwide network of technology and business incubation infrastructure, sponsored and enabled by Tata Trusts, Government of India and a number of academic, philanthropic and corporate partnerships.
