As part of the incubation program, SPTBI will groom incubatees into entrepreneurship and also provide them with support in developing their ideas. Incubatees will also be provided with access to market, seed fund and investor pool, co-working facilities apart from stage wise nurturing.
B. N. Chaudhari, Chairperson, SPTBI said, “The Indian startup ecosystem gives people a chance to change the world through their ideas. We want to make this ecosystem inclusive and equal for even those who are differently abled because skill and talent has no limit. The program will encourage people with disability to test their potential and give them an equal chance in creating innovative solutions for business and society.”
Tanushree Sharma, Founder, LoveActually.Me said, “Our motto is to bring inclusivity through equality. As a social enterprise we conduct several online and offline activities that help differently abled individuals achieve personal and professional independence. Our partnership with SPTBI stems from the strong belief that an opportunity is needed by anyone to succeed in life and through this initiative, we are helping many aspiring individuals who are disabled to turn their dream of entrepreneurship into reality.”
