What is Fiinovation all about?
With a vision to ensure development is not only sustainable and easy to access but also simplistic and scalable; we started Fiinovation back in 2009. Each day, at our institution we live by this.
Fiinovation, a research-based CSR consultancy helps corporations channelize the resources efficiently for the upliftment of the community on societal, economic and ecological aspects in accordance with their company CSR charter. We are determinedly working since 2009 on social welfare sector and with different CSR initiatives across India on health, environment, livelihood and education projects.
After the act being mandated, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has transformed from an auxiliary concept to a strategic practice in business operations across the globe. Consequently, our major focus now is to identify real societal needs, help our partners design focused CSR policies. Formulating a focused policy and guideline is a key element for a business towards a holistic and inclusive growth.
Furthermore, our initiative Design and Management Service is intended to design the requisite program, plan for the implementation and moreover assist to shortlist the implementing partner for the program through its in-house “Proposal Research Laboratory”.
More importantly, we facilitate planning of the program, its implementation, monitoring and evaluation, impact assessment and finally, submission of the respective reports. Our monitoring and evaluation team recognizes the effectiveness and quality of an initiative, thereby ensures accountability towards the stakeholders. The team aligns the methods of the project basis with the meticulous findings and suggestions. Need Assessment, Baseline Study, Mid-term and End-term Evaluation Perception Study and Impact Assessment are some of our Monitoring and evaluation processes.
Impact Assessment (IA) is an imperative component of a CSR project management, which enables the program ideators to analyze the relevant economic, social and environmental impact of a project and precisely focuses on learning and analysis. Our approach of embedding common indicators of impact assessment and economic valuation has set us apart in the sector.
At Fiinovation, we realize the right ground-level approach to address these challenges with cost-effectiveness and time-orientation. Certainly, there is immense scope and lot of power with corporates to bring about quantitative and qualitative social transformation.
