India is a country of myriad contradictions. On the one hand, it has grown to be one of the largest economies in the world, and an increasingly important player in the emerging global order, on the other hand, it is still home to the largest number of people living in absolute poverty and the largest number of undernourished children. What emerges is a picture of the uneven distribution of the benefits of growth which many believe, is the root cause of social unrest. And we believe that addressing social unrest/complex societal challenges requires a fundamental shift in the way businesses, societies, governments and other stakeholders engage with each other. The aspirations of the 4 billion people who live today at the ‘base of the pyramid’ need to be absorbed in sustainable and inclusive ways in the larger growth story.
We believe that entrepreneurs, organizations and communities who come together and script solutions to these ‘opportunities’ will define the future course of our collective “tomorrow”. We are taking the finest research on CSR from top universities and think-tanks, and partnering with leading global CSR/cause firms to bring astute and intelligent CSR strategy, implementation and cause marketing services to Indian companies so that they can fulfil their social commitments most effectively and most beneficially to both society, and themselves.
As a CSR Consultant, we are developing impactful corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. Our focus areas include CSR strategy, Policy formation, Research, Programme design, implementation, execution, and assess on-the-ground impact of such initiatives. We also work with international and domestic partners and foundations to facilitate multi-stakeholder platforms around critical social issues.
We offer support for any stage of the sustainability journey; whether your organisation is starting out or accelerating hard. With our help:
- You will get the help you need to convince the Board and the business of the value of sustainability
- You will achieve great internal buy-in from colleagues on the ground for sustainability programmes

- You’re on a journey, EIFE is a safe pair of hands to help navigate it.

In January 2016 Hon’ble Prime Minister of India launched the ‘Start-up India’ initiative with 19 action points to build a robust Start-up ecosystem in the country for nurturing innovation and providing opportunities to budding entrepreneurs. The active support of State/UT Governments is crucial for achieving the overall objectives of the program.
In order to achieve the vision of building a strong ecosystem in India, it is imperative that collaborative and concerted efforts are undertaken by Centre and States/UTs together for effectively nurturing and supporting Start-ups for their success.
