Transforming India Initiative is a two-year programme focussed on experiential learning.
In two years, the fellows will move from being job seekers to job creators with a cause.
They will be imbibed with all the skills and mindsets required to be
successful entrepreneurs during the two years.
And for the ensuing six years after the fellowship, they will continue to receive access to all the funds, resources
and mentoring required for them to launch and grow their enterprise.

The key principle around which the Transforming India Initiative is built is the experiential learning approach.
Fellows spend 75% of their time
on the ground, working with entrepreneurs, solving real life entrepreneurial challenges.
There are two key components in the programme:
the Facilitated Learning component and the Experiential Learning component.
Facilitated Learning
Facilitated Learning
6-month instructive learning in Hyderabad (Text and discussion based learning, practitioner workshops and travel workshops)
Experiential Learning
Experiential Learning
18-month Experiential learning (Apprenticeship with a founder at an enterprise) + (Reflection, travel & learning workshops and Online learning modules)
The programme starts with the six-month long facilitated learning module.
Here, all the fellows receive the basic skills, exposure and mindsets required for them to start
their work on the ground equipped with confidence and capacity to solve the challenges of
the enterprise where they are placed.
Following this, the fellows will be placed with an enterprise for 18 months.
Here they will learn through practice, reflection, discussions with their peer mentor and online learning modules.
The experience of working in an enterprise with experienced entrepreneurs and
solving complex real life challenges will serve as valuable experience that not many will get.
The fellows also leave the fellowship with inspiration, relationships, advice, learnings and connections that they can count on for the rest of their lives.
