KSUM’s “impeccable record, growth and global position will provide your company with unmatched potential for your CSR activities, with assured impact, value and visibility”, the organisation said.

The government has introduced several provisions under the Companies Act, 2013, which enable corporates to contribute their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds to approved TBIs and registered not-for-profit entities that can act as start-up supporting entities in specific areas. Corporates can support KSUM start-ups through CSR donations and grants.

KSUM, as a non-profit entity registered in 2014 under Society Act 1956, is an incubator approved by the Union government’s Department of Science and Technology’s National Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Development Board.
