    objectives of social impact and economic returns
    by providing enterprise financing to
    socially-focused innovative enterprises.
  • Objectives
  • Financing socially-focused innovations by Indian
    entrepreneurs and innovators who address key
    development challenges among citizens in the
    lower half of the income pyramid, in critical
    areas such as healthcare, energy, and livelihood.
  • Offering scalable, self-sustaining solutions to
    Indian socio-economic challenges. However, these
    innovators face a shortage of venture financing,
    tailored to the unique requirements of
    socially-focused inclusive innovation.
  • Composition of IIIF
  • A SEBI-registered venture capital fund, the IIIF
    will receive 20 of its capital from the
    Government of India, with the remainder drawn
    from banks, financial institutions, insurance
    companies, and bilateral / multilateral
    development agencies.
  • An intial corpus of Rs. 500 crores is being
    raised with contributions from public sector
    banks, multilateral agencies and other
    stakeholders . The Honble Finance Minister has
    already announced an initial contribution of Rs.
    100 crores (US 20 million) as seed money for the
    Fund. In-principle commitments to the tune of
    Rs. 375 crores have been received from various
    Financial Institutions.

    from its investees.
  • Ownership of IIIF
  • The proposal is anchored in the Ministry of
    Medium, Small and Micro Enterprises (MSME).
  • Structure of IIIF
  • The management structure of the fund will enable
    autonomous decision - making along with public
    accountability. This will include a Section 25

    Council consisting of eminent individuals and
