The Buddha Fellowship is a social responsibility initiative by The Buddha Institute.



 We support early-stage startups through a 24-month journey to move from existing micro-entrepreneur organization to a sustainable organization with greater impact, say from an annual turnover of $25,000 to $250,000 (INR 20 Lakh to 2 Cr). Our fellows receive mentorship from experts from industry, government and CSOs, and a seed funding in the range of $4000 to $30,000 (INR 3 to 25 Lakh), or $15,000 (INR 10 lakh) on an average. Six offsite problem solving workshops are organized, focused on various aspects of building, growing, and sustaining an impact-focused organization.

We believe that the success of an early-stage enterprise rests as much on the idea as the people. We therefore support a handful of individuals with high emotional quotient as well as having grit and determination to drive systemic change and improve the lives of at least 50,000 people in their lifetime.
