The XLRI Social Entrepreneurship Trust is supporting 3 Social Entrepreneuship Ventures by XL students who have decided to take the "road less travelled" as a career option. These are nascent ventures, currently in the form of partnership firms. We are trying to provide them support through the initial incubation loans (thanks to the Rs 10.5lac contributions received from the XLRI batch of '81 and from the Jamshedpur Alumni Chapter)
- Swavalamban: a venture to use "ox-driven generator" (patented technology) to provide electricity to rural India. It was covered here a few days back:
- Dreams4Others: a venture to use online market-surveys to provide funds to NGOs.
To raise funds for these and other future activities of the XLRI Social Entrepreneurship Trust, we are organising the XL Dream Run (http://www.xldreamrun.com) , on Nov 16, '08 - where the XL students/faculty will run for the cause, and the alumni can pledge money for the cause.
thanks and cheers
