My Journey at SVP

Over the last 4 years in Delhi, we 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 a worthy opportunity to get the right funding along with the right mentorship. Contributing that correct combination at SVP has kept us charged.
