Global Alliance for Mass Entrepreneurship (GAME)


GAME intends to unlock the potential of Mass Entrepreneurship (ME) in India. Three prolific entrepreneurs, Ravi Venkatesan, Madan Padaki, and Mekin Maheshwari, started GAME in August 2018 as a backbone organization that aligns the ecosystem and mobilizes action to address systemic challenges to job creation in India. As a backbone organization, GAME intends to bring together a cross-section of alliances, partners, funders, and other players in the ecosystem who can help inspire an entrepreneurial movement across the country.

GAME's mission is to catalyze an India-wide movement of mass entrepreneurship for the growth of both existing and new enterprises. Resulting in 50 million new jobs by 2030, where women own 25% of the businesses. As an alliance of partners, GAME intends to operate as a capable overseeing body that supports mission-aligned members and empowers stakeholders to achieve breakthroughs in identified and defined problem areas in the nation.

As the first step, GAME raises funds and channels them in the right direction while simultaneously working with policymakers in drawing up favorable policies that will create a conducive environment for entrepreneurship in the country. GAME takes up a leadership role in helping to convene and facilitate a dialogue between stakeholders, eventually creating a knowledge repository for those embarking on a similar journey in the future.

GAME supports partners hoping to scale existing players to the next level of growth. And in the process aims to draw on the learnings from the ecosystem and existing players to help redraw the national agenda on entrepreneurship and employment to address gaps.
