Impact Guru – An entrepreneur for the society!
Impact Guru has added another feather to its cap. Our team has been selected to be a part of the prestigious PACT Incubator Singapore, a 4- month programme for top social enterprises in Southeast Asia.
Last year the start-up was accepted into the Venture Incubation Program, 2014 at Harvard iLab.
Our founder and chief executive officer, Piyush Jain who will be representing the team in Singapore said, “the whole team was delighted to hear the news, now we need to make most of the mentorship and coaching we receive from all leading social entrepreneurs and impact investors in Southeast Asia and incorporate their best practices.”
Jain also added that, this will give us the much needed exposure and connections to leading nonprofits, corporates, social venture capital firms in Southeast Asia.
PACT Incubator Singapore is launched by The Hub Singapore in partnership with the DBS Foundation and the National Youth Council. The whole idea is to help grow validated business ideas and scale social impact. It is a 4- month programme that focuses on solution-market fit and the investment readiness of the social enterprise. As an incubatee, you can win up to $15,000 seed grant for the top team and $10,000 seed grant for the second team. In addition, you will gain customised coaching and mentoring, workshops by thought leaders, social entrepreneurs and academia on topics including resources and partnerships, go-to-market strategy, legal, financials and pitching.
Impact Guru will be sharing updates form its experience in Singapore. So stay tuned!
