SAP Labs India and the Indian School of Business (ISB), have entered into a collaboration to nurture startups in the social enterprise space with relevance to national priorities. Jumpstart Social Enterprise (JSE) will identify five startups in the social enterprise space to provide training, mentorship and access to networks to speed up the ventures to a sustainable scale.
The four-month mentor-driven programme will provide the startups access to business and academic mentors, and subject experts through the Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) at ISB and SAP Labs. The startups will be identified through a nation-wide selection process with the involvement of the SAP, ISB and other industry experts. Two members of the founding team will be invited to be part of the Jumpstart program at the ISB and SAP Labs to receive mentorship, training and networking opportunity with academia and industry experts.
An engagement with ISB-SAP JSE will help you to:
Work closely with the entrepreneurs to make your ventures scalable and sustainable.
Gain access to the rich network of academic and industry mentors, and immensely talented student pool of ISB.
Gain access to a wide network of Investors, mentors and a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem.
