Who we are  

 

Manush Labs is an accelerator program for underserved Indian innovators & entrepreneurs from tier 2 cities. Our team comes from tier 2 cities of India and Africa.   

We attempt to empower entrepreneurs by integrating design thinking, creative capacity building, systems thinking, and collaborative problem-solving into our accelerator program. We are based in India. 

 

Our roots

Built at MIT and Harvard 

We have been conceptualized and developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,  USA

and our founding team has been trained at the robust & inclusive entrepreneurship ecosystem of MIT and Harvard. Combatting social inequities and injustices is our core mission and we are proud to be part of MIT's Inclusive Innovation Grant Program

 

Our Philosophy

Manush  - Sanskrit मनुष्य (manuṣya), derived from Manu - 'human'

We believe that societies can be transformed through 'humane' entrepreneurial interventions that go beyond business profitability. We empower compassion driven impact entrepreneurs to nurture their ideas into equitable and scalable solutions while democratizing access to mentoring, funding, and network building within the innovation ecosystem.

 

 

Strategy

We catalyze the vision of government, social organizations, foundations, and corporations that are focussed on combating deep-rooted problems of Indian society by making them essential partners in our value chain.
