Scale For social entrepreneurs facing the myriad of challenges related to scaling up (not just financing), here’s a resource that may provide some insights. The Ayllu Initiative has recently launched the India Map, which portrays 24 social entrepreneurs’ perspectives on various growth challenges, and how they are innovating around them.
“This is the best example of what I love to call Indo-vation. This is India as not only a hotbed of technological innovation, it’s a hotbed of social innovation, and it’s a hotbed of business model innovation.” – Aleem Walji, manager of the Innovation Practice at World Bank Institute

Ayllu is proud to announce the India Map. Just launched at SOCAP 11, the map examines, through the perspective of entrepreneurs, key scaling challenges and innovations. Sponsored by Potencia Ventures (formerly Artemisia International), the map focuses on what constraints enterprises across sectors in India face to understand the contexts in which they work, establish their business models, and scale up their operations and impact. Ayllu identified 9 major scaling constraints as well as innovations, which are illustrated by hundreds of case examples. The map format is consistent with the Energy Map we released in May; we want the case studies and data to speak for themselves. Users can easily and quickly search within it for information that is most relevant to them.
