Social Entrepreneurship of the Year in India

Shwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship (and many other organizations) awards Social Entrepreneurship award in India. It is for the people who already made their companies in the level of changing the society. Surprisingly the award amount is meagre 20000 US$. Vikram Akula was the last year awardee. Harish Hande of Selco, Rajendra Joshi of Saath, Pravin Mahajan of Janarth and Chetna Gala Sinha of Mann Deshi Mahila Sahakari Bank have been shortlisted for this year's award.

There is also Micro Entrepreneurs Award and you may learn about this year's Micro Entrepreneurs Awardees. These are the guys who established self-sustaining businesses using micro-credits.
