Tsunagaru Lab (SDGs Business Co-Creation Lab) was launched by JICA India to connect Japanese companies with Social Enterprises in India that are looking for reliable local partners with a proven track record about CSR activities in India, who could collect data and conduct research for R&D and Marketing enabling to deliver goods and services to the last one mile in India. Also scouting for promising start-ups with unique technology, products and services. 

JICA believes that significant social impact (development effects) can be created when social enterprises work with diverse players to solve India’s various challenges through innovative approaches and business models in various fields such as healthcare, education, agriculture, waste, and energy.

The Program’s objective is to promote first-of-its-kind achievement of the SDGs in India, especially in social development, by supporting the efforts of the Government of India (GoI) to strengthen the policy framework and implementation mechanism, thereby helping India achieve the SDGs by 2030. This program’s design aligns with the Government of India’s activities to support districts that have the potential to accelerate the achievement of the SDGs in India. The program expedites the five themes, namely, health and nutrition, education, agriculture and water resources, financial inclusion and skill development, and basic infrastructure.

To achieve the objective JICA India encourages the participation of Indian social enterprises and Japanese corporates to reach out to Tsunagaru Lab Team  [email protected] to join the initiative. And also to register for Tsunagaru Lab activity on 27th February 2024 ( )
