At Unltd Tamil Nadu we SEARCH, SELECT and SUPPORT exceptional individuals who are committed to solve some of India's biggest challenges using their passion and entrepreneurial skills.

Social entrepreneurs use tools from the business world to solve social problems like poverty, hunger, disease and pollution. There are thousands of talented and passionate changemakers in Tamil Nadu who could transform this country, given the right support! We are affiliated to UnLtd India's national incubator network.

Our goal

To incubate 30 social entrepreneurs over the next two years, who will in turn change 180,000 people's lives
