All We See is Potential.

It starts with one person. One person joins many people. Together they will help build communities able to solve our most entrenched problems.

That’s SVP. A global network of local partners aligning passion and purpose.

Helping individuals realize greater impact with their giving, strengthening nonprofits, and investing in collaborative solutions – we make connections that make a difference. Connections that unleash potential.

Our journey started in Bangalore, India’s hub of innovation, technology and culture. As part of the SVP global network of local partners, we are connecting passion and purpose. We believe that we can have a hand in tackling many of the critical issues that face all of us, in Bangalore and beyond.

Where others see insurmountable problems, we see potential.
