“There is a momentum both in terms of the quantum of amount spent and the number of companies spending on CSR. While the focus of a large number of companies continues to remain on education and healthcare, there also seems to be a focus on innovative practices and visibility of efforts. In the future, I see a trend moving towards creating impact at scale through incubation of social enterprises. A significant effort will also be invested in measuring and assessing impact of the money spent.”
