The Shift Series

Founded on the premise that we learn from experiences whether are own or that of others, The Shift Series brings to its audience of life long learners events that are out of the ordinary which shake our belief  and compel one to shift their thinking.

The Shift Series is an organization that acts as a catalyst for people to transcend personal and social barriers, creating opportunities that inspires passion, encourage innovation and out-of-the-box thinking. While doing so, The Shift Series endeavors to empower the next generation of concerned world citizens, giving them opportunities to interact and discuss matters of local and global importance.

School for Social Entrepreneurship India

The School for Social Entrepreneurs India formally launched in Delhi on 3rd February 2016.

The School for Social Entrepreneurship (SSE) supports people using entrepreneurial approaches to tackle complex social problems. They help the social entrepreneurs gain practical business skills in addition to igniting entrepreneurial zeal for creating social value.

Action Learning forms the core of their pedagogy. Since their fellowship programme is action focused so participants must have time to dedicate to working on their project in between the fellowship sessions.

SSE India aims to support innovative grassroots projects. We search for great ideas from people with firsthand experience of social issues because we strongly believe personal experience builds a strong foundation of practical knowledge.
