We are looking for contributors who are genuinely driven by the vision and mission of Jagriti.

Our corporate partners recognise that entrepreneurship is critical not just for job-creation but also to spur innovation and development in agriculture, healthcare, energy, education and other vital sectors that take the economy forward.

Life-Changing Experience to 550 Youngsters, mostly coming from small towns and villages

As contributors, our corporate partners have helped take 550 future nation builders and potential entrepreneurs each year on this journey of awakening.

Over 60% of our participants hail from small towns and villages where the need for job creation is vital. The exposure, learning and network gained from the Yatra is instrumental in their entrepreneurial journey.

Contribution opportunities

Apart from massively transforming the lives of Indian youth on-board the train, the Yatra also has a wide and deep reach through its messaging on the train and local transport, merchandise and products, branding, media coverage and year-long support activities. This gives an equal opportunity to our partners to find a relevant audience for their brand.

How do you benefit?

If you are motivated and inspired by our vision, and find value in our impact on India’s youth and its entrepreneurial potential, we are happy to offer a customized value proposition that associates your company’s brand and values with Jagriti Yatra’s core characteristics of enterprise, innovation, collaboration, and transformation.

By collaborating with Jagriti Yatra, you automatically get the benefits of reach and impact –

  • Associating with a unique youth movement of entrepreneurship
  • Projecting the brand as supporter of the youth of the country involved in nation-building effort
  • Penetrating into the small towns and villages of the country through year-long activities and media-led campaigns
  • Accessing our ever-growing strong alumni network of youth across the country

Contributors for Deserving Yatris

The ‘experiential learning’ provided by the Yatra exposes India’s youth to role model enterprises. These can adapted and replicated in their own setting. Jagriti Yatra has led to deep impact for the Yatris, 40% of whom get involved in some form of business and social entrepreneurship post the Yatra experience.

Your support will provide an opportunity for these nation-builders to be a part of this transformational experience.

Contributors for Women Yatris

40% of our Yatris are women, and we aim to take this to 50%. We firmly believe that women must play an equal role in the Nation-Building process.

Don’t miss this opportunity to contributor for a future woman entrepreneur and to encourage more and more women to be a part of the Yatra, so we can see this 40% ratio grow.
