A Model Enterprise

Global health and development are evolving, which requires PSI’s business model to evolve as well. To offer sustainable health solutions for our beneficiaries in India, PSI created a partnership between two entities in that country: PSI’s newly established social enterprise, the PSI-India Private Limited (LLC), and PSI-India, which remains a non-profit entity. The LLC and PSI-India are distinct and separate, but they share interests and values.

The LLC allows PSI to invest in and profit from relationships and opportunities that stimulate the market to achieve health impact at scale. The revenue generated, which is not tied to restricted requirements, will be reinvested into the projects and programs our beneficiaries need, making PSI able to nimbly apply subsidy where it’s needed most. Check out this graphic below to understand more how they will work together.
