On an otherwise reasonable evening, more than 1,000 people packed an auditorium in Boulder, Colorado, for the culmination of the 2011 Unreasonable Institute. They came to see 27 ventures  present their solutions to some of the world’s greatest challenges.

Hemant Nitturkar, Founder & CEO of JUGNU, shares how his venture is turning job-seekers into job-creators in India to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs at the bottom of the pyramid.

Ennovent conducted the “Needs of Social Entrepreneurs” survey in mid-2010 and the results from across 39 countries showed the acees to Financial Resources leads the list, followed very closely by Mentor Support and Market Access.

At JUGNU we address these pain points by creating a collaborative ecosystem for early stage enterprises. JUGNU partners with like minded organisations working in complemetary areas to provide a one stop service to the under served diamonds in the rough. And, through its unique and proprietary early stage equity capital raising platform helps the companies raise between $50,000 and $500,000 of risk capital.

JUGNU works with these enterprises pre- and post-capital raising thus over time creating a robust pipeline for next level of investors.

Our target small business client is an ethical, scalable and sustainable business that can create a visible social and/or environmental impact.
