SPARSH the social innovation initiative of BIRAC is strategically designed to leverage biotechnological interventions for addressing critical societal issues. The core premise of the SPARSH scheme revolves around nurturing a cadre of accomplished "Social Innovators" within the biotech domain. This distinguished group is equipped to adeptly identify community needs and gaps, subsequently formulating innovative product developments or services to bridge these disparities. SPARSH program provides comprehensive approach, encompassing immersive experiences in clinical and rural settings, complemented by essential funding assistance through mini kick-start grants.
These strategic provisions empower nascent social innovators to manifest tangible prototypes with far-reaching impact. Going beyond financial backing, the program's consistent allocation of monthly fellowships underscores its unwavering commitment to fostering a new generation of biotech-driven social entrepreneurs, poised to redefine the socio-economic landscape.
