Union Budget of India has doubled fund allocation for MSME sector serving the Rural and semi-urban community but the estimate of the needs by those familiar with these communities far exceed such commendable goal. This is where private-public enterprises can amplify and accelerate developments of Sustainable projects.
One such channel is the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) incentives given to Commercial Corporate sector in one of the most strategic plans in the world for Social Upliftment. After several years of experimentation with this massive scheme of Social impact funding, India is revising the CSR rules, specially affecting the contributions that Indian diaspora can make to serve their motherland.
WHEELS have assembled some leaders with subject matter expertise in a speaker's panel to exchange ideas with a global audience and promote another connecting channel for funding social projects to last webinar's theme of capital market's entry into Social Impact Investment.
Please Join us on Friday, March 26th 2021, from 09:30 AM to 11 AM US ET, (7 PM to 08:30 PM IST), in an open dialogue with the speakers
