Applying a ‘bottoms up’ approach to building scalable solutions, the Deshpande Foundation at Hubli Sandbox works to create an effective ecosystem where resources are put to use through entrepreneurship, innovation, and sustainability. Located in Northwest Karnataka in India, the Hubli Sandbox engages with nonprofits, academics, organizations, and entrepreneurs who are involved with the launch of effective and scalable models of development. We seek to empower communities with leadership and skill development programs that prepare urban and rural youth to lead or manage social enterprises. Through such programs, we strive to launch effective solutions through the investment of social enterprises. To date, we have reached more than one million families in Northern Karnataka.
