Investment Strategy
To address the devastating effects of the Covid-19 pandemic over the next 12-24 months, we are focussing on two longer-term issues – MSMEs and migrant workers – that have got renewed focus due to the pandemic. As a part of our ReSolve Initiative, we believe it is time for India’s boldest and brightest minds – entrepreneurs, thought leaders, policy makers and citizens – to come together to reframe and resolve the issues plaguing these areas.

We will be investing to empower MSMEs and support migrant workers.To know more about the initiative click here. If you have further questions, please refer to the FAQs section
