Most people who encounter NSPA are intrigued by the economics of running an initiative like this..

Person X: “So what’s your revenue model?”
NSPA Team: “We don’t have a revenue model!”

We’ve lost count of how many people have been baffled by the above response. However, in plain speak, ‘busking’/ street performances is not top priority even altogether unnecessary to premier Art institutions/ artists. Public spaces in modern cities are scarce and performances therein, if any, are either experimentations, publicity ploys or a desperate means for marginalized artists to earn a livelihood. There have been few buyers for the idea of democratizing spaces for the Arts in the recent past.

NSPA was seeded as a project under the aegis of our parent company HelpYourNGO.com India Private Limited. All our funds for the first financial year were invested by our founder Mr. Ajit Dayal.

Quantum Mutual Fund
Quantum Asset Management Company
Two months into performances and we found our first Sponsor in Quantum Asset Management Company (or Quantum AMC)- an institution that is distinguished in the Indian financial market for its scrupulous credibility and transparent functioning.

Quantum AMC, a 7 year old organization, is is known for its radical thinking and foresight in the country’s financial sector. Passionately committing itself to doing only what is best for the investor ethically and transparently; Quantum AMC has always stood for what they believe is the right thing. Quantum Mutual Fund is India’s first dedicated, direct-to-investor mutual fund. They refused to be a part of a system that encouraged an opaque distribution channel and till date does not pay any commissions that eat into investors’ savings but instead developed and directly sold simple financial products that are beneficial to small and big savers.

Quantum AMC has also been a keen supporter of the Arts, always setting aside a portion of its earnings to sponsor diverse Arts initiatives in the country. NSPA and QAMC found common ground in their shared zeal to take the path less trodden and break new ground in developing a body of work that was built on the power of ideas and commitment to the larger welfare of society. Quantum AMC, today, is not just a source of funds for NSPA but more so a great source of encouragement and faith in what we do.

Quantum AMC therefore takes great pride in sponsoring NSPA and helping it achieve its noble goal of taking Art to the people.

- Radhika Shetty

I reached Vashi station tired and worn out from the days work, to see a crowd formed around a man, went to investigate, and I saw a man performing a song which sounded like Sufi music to me. His voice echoed through the granite corridors of the station and the merry strums of his guitar filled the air with melancholy. I stood there hearing his song about finding God in ones own belief, reminded me of Kabir ke Dohe which i had read when i was a kid.
- Satish Kumar

Very good job. Public gets exposure to good music. Also you guys play very well.
- Harsha Shah

In this busy life schedule I could take time off to listen to the performer. Hope this will bring forth also the poorer folks, that they would be given opportunities
