“Over the last several years in Delhi, I have seen the successful co-mingling of monetary contribution complemented by providing intangibles to the Investee firms – wisdom, leadership, guidance, process orientation. We see big CSR funding for large NGOs, but the relatively smaller ones do not get an excellent opportunity to get the proper financing along with the right mentorship. Contributing to that correct combination at SVP has kept me charged.”
