"We did realise that there is a huge vacuum out there for affordable access to a trusted and competent legal counsel for social entrepreneurs, there was also a persistent reinvention of the wheel wherein there was no aggregated form of knowledge inputs available for these questions that we kept hearing time and again. So this legal handbook essentially was a joint endeavour under the thought leadership of the Khemka Foundation and Amarchand Mangaldas as well as in my personal capacity in which we tried to democratize access to these kinds of informational inputs and put them down on paper." - Pankaj Jain

"The handbook as Pankaj says definitely gives a lot of answers to the preliminary standard questions that any and every enterprise, that any start up whether it be social or otherwise has and specifically it focusses on social enterprise in terms of experience, in terms of specific tax sops etc. So it's a good ready reckoner." - Anshuman Jaiswal

 

Listen in to this podcast conversation with Anshuman Jaiswal, Partner Amarchand Mangaldas and Suresh A. Shroff & Co., and Pankaj Jain, Founder Impact Law Ventures and as they decode the Legal Handbook.

"There is a tendency to write the entire symphony all the way to the last note and then try to sell it. When in fact with things like small scale distributable renewable energy I think it is very important to think of it as an unfinished symphony where you come in with potential and then engage in a process whereby people in the community itself in the space that you are looking to serve become co-participants in filling out and completing the rest of the symphony."

 

In this podcast, Stuart L. Hart, an ardent advocate for sustainable development and one of the world's leading authorities on the implications of environment and poverty for business strategy, talks to Gaurav Gupta from Dalberg Consulting on what it will take to build sustainable solutions for those at the base of the pyramid.
