WHAT
DRIVES US

The thrust of technology-driven entrepreneurship in India has mostly been towards the same, affluent sliver of our massive nation. The rest of the population - both urban and rural, has been traditionally underserved given the challenges of servicing this high-volume, low-value user base. In recent years, technology has lowered the cost and time to scale digital services significantly. Yet, over half a billion Indians still remain underserved by the existing solutions. The Bharat Inclusion Initiative supports startups driven towards building for this market.
