All We See is Potential.

SVP India is a diverse community of business leaders, active citizens and philanthropists investing our time, money and expertise to scale innovative nonprofits.

Our focus is on making a dent in poverty through catalyzing livelihoods at the bottom of the pyramid. We focus on organizations that work to promote livelihoods – be it through income augmentation, vocational skills training and placement, or micro-enterprise development. Currently, we work with NGOs that create inclusive livelihood opportunity for youth, women, farmers, artisans and the differently-abled in various ways.

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.
