Other Communities We're In:

SVP International

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.

We create a community of philanthropists to fund and mentor emerging nonprofits to help them get to the next level. Launched in 2012, Social Venture Partners India has expanded to three cities – Bangalore, Mumbai and Pune, raised millions for direct investment with our investees and provided thousands of hours of volunteer time and expertise to those nonprofit organizations.
