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.




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.
