Since its inception in 2003, Marico Innovation Foundation has strived to fuel and nurture innovation in India. Through its core programs, the Foundation has played a catalytic role in the innovation ecosystem to help start-ups scale-up. The Foundation responded to the growing seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic by launching a first of its kind grand challenge Innovate2Beat COVID in March 2020.
