Municipalities in India are resource-strapped, they are significantly behind on service provisions and climate change risks continue to exacerbate.

Leveraging novel processes, products and practices, to tackle resource and climate-related challenges, can enable swift and sustainable growth that results in better public service provisioning.
"WRI India Ross Center’s STAMP Accelerator (2017) helped Bounce develop their use-case for two-wheeler rentals for last-mile connectivity and launch a pilot in Bengaluru.

As of early 2020, Bounce has raised a total of $252.7M in funding over 8 rounds."
