PRODUCED BY
The Social Street

Stories start on the street. They are inspired by the lives of people and the interesting mind-spaces where they intersect with brands.

We find, tell and amplify those stories, no matter what form they take. We make sure that they are powerfully rooted in an authentic brand truth or its point of view.

Why? It’s simply because these narratives play well on the streets that matter most to your brand and you.

The ones that people inhabit.

It may be, the literal ones that they walk beside and drive on. Or the virtual highways that they surf. The verbal paths that connect mouths to ears. Sometimes all of the above. These are the streets that make brands social. And very few can help you navigate them as well as we can.

Welcome to The Social Street.

GreenBatti

The GreenBatti Project, an initiative by Social Quotient, enables young professionals to mentor children from lower income groups through a structured curriculum. Over a span of 4 months, mentor-mentee pairs will learn together, share secrets, explore new ideas and most importanly get an insight into each other’s world – an experience which new media can never replicate. Being the elder one, we want you to inspire the mentee and nudge him/her to move forward not letting their prevailing socio-economic circumstances be a deterrent. Access and opportunities don’t always need to have a price tag.

SheThePeople

The Future is Female. Women across the world are actively joining the workforce, asserting themselves on issues and networking to become a strong force. In India over 60 million women are set to get online. From leaders, game-changers, board members, executives and entrepreneurs, sportswomen and politicians and every woman engaging in her goals, we are changing the conversation about them. We believe we are an active positive part of that change.

Companies and countries perform much better when they include and engage women in their workforce. Women in India, whether in farming communities or city centers, are taking steps toward becoming fully integrated and valued members of society. Many are setting up their own businesses, others are joining organisations that are ‘thinking’ women.

SheThePeople is their platform. A video story telling space that inspires women, strengthens their efforts, exchanges leadership ideas, fosters networking and reinforces their ability to contribute to growth.

Our community of women are driven, diverse and engaging. Through our special videos on SheThePeople.TV we are presenting the modern Indian woman a platform to discuss and share the challenges faced by this up-tapped leadership community. We are investing in women and they are investing in us.

Feeding India

Feeding India is a not-for-profit social enterprise which aims to connect two major social problems today: Hunger and Food waste as solutions for each other. We tackle these by channelizing excess food from individuals, weddings, restaurants, corporate offices to the people who really need it and have no means or access food. Our belief is that we do not need to create new food to feed the less privileged, but to simply direct the extra food which is already created. We also tackle the problem at its roots, where we encourage people not to waste food at all.
