"Having been chosen out of over 3,600 applicants, we are very motivated as we now have access to seed funding, mentorship and leadership opportunities to help finance the business launch and propel Oorja in helping to reduce social exclusion, combat energy poverty and improve food security for small-holding farmers in rural India." says Clementine Chambon, Co- Founder of Oorja.
