NASSCOM Social Innovation Forum (NSIF) is a ‘Tech for Good’ platform that drives technology led innovation to create sustained social impact. By supporting technology based solutions that address critical gaps in key developmental areas, the platform aims to foster inclusive growth. Owing to the pervasive nature of Information Communication Technology (ICT), its application is being witnessed across sectors to deliver and enhance development programs. ICT helps build more effective processes, better products and aids the delivery of services in the areas of Education, Healthcare, Livelihood and Agriculture, Accessibility, Environment and other social issues. It is this potential of ‘technology for good’ that NSIF aims to capture. Instituted by NASSCOM Foundation in 2008, the program has attracted more than 1,000 innovative projects from NGOs, corporate, social enterprises, government bodies, PSUs, students and individuals. Winning projects have received visibility on a national platform, mentoring support and catalytic grants.
