Special features of the organization

  • DERBI Foundation’s core strength is in not only identifying the potential innovators to solve India’s community health problems but also in supporting them in their entrepreneurial journey.  Many innovations in India are developed for a noble cause, but most of them go invisible due to a lack of proper assistance. Right assistance and support to the skilled resource have the power to make wonders in many lives. Likewise, DERBI Foundation has supported more than 150 + innovators across sectors and 80+ on health tech. The innovations that are supported by DERBI Foundation should have touched more than 50000 lives and created a significant impact on the community. Almost 400+ jobs have been created directly from these innovations, and 35% of the innovators are women.
  • To continue and foster innovation by aligning with the government’s “Atmanirbhar Bharat” mission, DERBI Foundation is ready to forge itself and evolve as per the community's needs by introducing the latest technologies to the economically weaker section.
  • DERBI Foundation has facilitated more than 1000+ mentoring hours and engaged with 170+ mentors/experts from various organizations to guide the innovators. The professional team has built-in processes and mechanisms to scout and support innovations across the length and breadth of the country.
  • Though DERBI Foundation selects innovations fundamentally based on the core ‘idea’ it empowers the innovators to transform their ideas into reality and thereby impact villages.
