Short listing projects from a pool of 264 detailed, innovative and diverse proposals has been a tough challenge for the India DM Team.
Over the last 3 weeks, each proposal was reviewed by at least two independent experts active in the social impact ecosystem in India and around the world. Our warm thanks go out to all our assessors for their in-depth reviews and the time spent scoring, ranking and commenting on proposals.
Based on the assessments, 30 of the top ranked proposals will move on to the next round of the competition. The assessment was based on the selection criteria described in the FAQs section. The 30 shortlisted projects will present their proposals to an expert Jury in Jaipur on the 6th of April 2011. At this event, the jury will select the final 13 winners of the 2011 India DM, who will be awarded $50,000 each to scale their projects.
Shortlisted teams will receive emails, before 10th March 2011, with details on the required next steps prior to their final presentations, on 6 April 2011, to the expert Jury in Jaipur.
The 2011 India DM competition is the kick-off event for a long-term programme supported by the World Bank’s Development Marketplace in India. Over the next few years we are looking forward to engaging with a wide array of social enterprises, across India in a collaborative and meaningful way.
A hearty congratulations to the shortlisted teams – we look forward to meeting you in Jaipur in early April. And a warm thank you to all the organizations who have participated in the competition so far.
