AIC-Sangam is set up as a platform to bring together the best minds, resources and capital solving sustainability problems, and serve as a launch pad for inclusive and scalable enterprises focused on improving access to energy and resource productivity for the underserved in India, that will lead the way in driving inclusive development and creation of communities that are resilient to climate change.
We are thesis-driven organization
We study the sector - its players, problems and customers, before we venture into incubating or accelerating any start-up in that sector. We have seen, from the GALI research on incubator effectiveness, that cohort quality is a critical driver of success. We view pipeline development as an active search process rather than a passive endeavor in which we wait to receive applications. This approach keeps us focused and helps us in building better networks to find relevant start-ups that fit our program thesis.
