Concept &
Approach

COVID has realigned the economy and ecosystem in a never expected manner and the worst impacted section of the society are those in the bottom of the pyramid. Start-ups that are working in livelihood space are the forerunners in stabilizing the economy and ecosystem. In an effort to lend our support to these flag bearers, KIIT-TBI in collaboration with Upaya has created a unique program called C-LIVE.
