D4GX India 2021 Empowerment Challenge – Applications Open Until September 7th, 2021.
Call for exceptional data-focussed innovations that empower vulnerable communities, creating inclusive & resilient growth
Since January 2021, Dasra, in partnership with Bloomberg, Societal Platform, and Stanford PACS, has been hosting a series of events as part of the Data for Good Exchange (D4GX) 2021 India, with the aim of enabling data agency for India’s most vulnerable communities. Thank you for being a part of these events and sharing your thoughts.
The pandemic has set India back on 10 of 17 SDG indicators, and caused the biggest economic contraction in 80 years. As the country writes a narrative of rebuilding from this crisis, we believe that scaling social innovations that use data to create exponential change will be a crucial enabler to India’s recovery.
To foster the growth of such high-potential solutions, we are proud to launch the D4GX India 2021 Empowerment Challenge – a hunt for exceptional data-focussed innovations that empower vulnerable communities, creating inclusive & resilient growth.
Winners across three themes – Data to enable equitable health services, Data to create urban resilience, Data to enrich learnings to livelihood transitions, will be awarded with innovation design grants, mentorship support, and catalyzing networks to further develop their innovations.
Applications open until September 7th, 2021. Apply now!
