The theme for this year’s Social Entrepreneurship Conclave is Rural Sustainability for a Cohesive World. The conference aims to explore how sustainable practices can transform the lives of the masses who constitute over 65 percent of the Indian population, and how doing that will help achieve a more unified and cohesive India in this divisive world.
Panel discussions will be held on two sub-themes where social entrepreneurs/ development sector professionals will share their experiences, challenges, and other issues:
•Developing Sustained Rural Livelihoods
•Agriculture Innovations Strengthening Rural India
S Sivakumar, Chairman, ITC Agri Business
Santosh Parulekar, Co-Founder & CEO, Pipal Tree Ventures

Rashmi Bharti, Co-Founder, Avani
Dr. Ramanjaneyulu, Executive Director, Centre of Sustainable Agriculture
Krishnan Pallassana, Country Director, India, Digital Green

One of the integral parts of the conclave is the breakout session pertaining to each sub-theme, where participants come together for an informal session to interact with speakers and fellow participants and to share their own work and experiences in the social sector. This would be a platform to network and collaborate with entrepreneurs, striving to make an impact in the social sector.
