What is Social Enterprise Mela (SEM)?

Social Enterprise Mela idea arose to create a platform for networking between entrepreneurs and students, while also developing an interest to pursue entrepreneurship in the social sector.

The second edition of SEM will host a forum for promising and budding social entrepreneurs to present their ideas, stories and entrepreneurial experiences. The event will also see panel discussions from prominent philanthropists, incubators, industry experts and social change veterans. 

We will be displaying student-led stalls promoting innovative business models to bring change. Students, professionals and young social entrepreneurs are invited to become a part of the Mela.
