The CORPORATE CARES category lends companies an opportunity to monetarily support an CSO of their choice and to engage their employees to participate in TCS World 10K Bengaluru 2017.

Companies can choose from any of the CSOs listed with India Cares for the Event, to donate the amount contributed by them. If the company’s preferred CSO is not registered with India Cares Foundation, India Cares Foundation will assist the CSO in completing its registration formalities and thereby stand to benefit through its association with the Event.

At TCS World 10K Bengaluru 2017, companies can choose to field Corporate Cares teams of following team strengths:

Team 5: A startup company, which is less than 3 years old, makes an upfront non-refundable contribution of INR 50,000 in favour of chosen CSO and fields a team of upto 5 employees.
