Nexus is proud to join Intellecap as a network partner for 9th Sankalp Global Summit by Sankalp Forum on 7-8th December in Mumbai, India. Sankalp Forum is Asia’s largest social enterprise forum that recognizes the most innovative, sustainable and high impact social enterprises, supports them to improve their capacities and thus contributes to creating a viable pipeline for impact investors.
Intellecap is a pioneer in providing innovative business solutions that help build and scale profitable and sustainable enterprises dedicated to social and environmental change and Sankalp Forum is one such initiative.
We live in an era where the tools to create shared prosperity and a decent quality of life for everyone exist; but means to ensure that this actually happens do not. Can quality of life become a human right with social defaults that ensure physical and mental well-being? What are the choices that we must make today to ensure this? And what is the moral compass that we need to question a system designed to benefit a few of us at the cost of the many? As defined by the Sustainable Development Goals, can we actually envision a future where basic rights to education, healthcare, livelihoods, and a basic quality of life are the new “social defaults”?
In a nutshell: a world where we have a lot more hope and a lot less despair. These are complex questions with no easy answers. But it is imperative that we answer them before it is too late for our future generations. No one individual or organization has all of the insights and lived-experiences necessary to tackle these. But together – we do.
This is why Sankalp Forum is bringing together 800 carefully curated entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, corporates, academics, policy makers, and other thought leaders from around the world to work together at the Sankalp Global Summit 2017 to learn, create, and make progress. The outcome of this work will be a Manifesto to achieve new social defaults in the developing world – a Manifesto that all of us can adopt as we invest our capital, time, and spirit in moving towards a sustainable and equitable future for all. We request you to attend the Sankalp Global Summit and participate in creating a sustainable future for all.
Nexus is proud to support such initiatives which focus on creating practical solutions to the problems by working with different ecosystem partners. We envision a future of being a “Nexus” between all the ecosystem players and we are proudly moving towards achieving this goal.
