Food storage containers that keep produce fresh longer in rural India. Solar powered chargers for phone and camera batteries. SMS platforms that link people with job opportunities. Technological innovations like SMS banking and biodegradable plastics. All these technologies can transform lives. Do you have ideas for new technologies or ways to leverage existing ones to impact more people?
Infrastructure & Transportation
Plans for building and maintaining pukka roads. Strategies for safer train travel. Innovations to make auto rickshaws more fuel efficient. Encouraging commuting by cycle by making cities more cyclist-friendly. With a population of over 1.2 billion people, India needs strong infrastructure and innovative transportation solutions.
Installing solar streetlamps in villages. Using alternative sustainable electricity sources to generate power in rural areas so they can enjoy electricity for the first time. Educating urbanites about energy conservation and sustainability. A developing India needs sustainable energy that can keep up with our growth. From increasing efficiency to generating electricity locally, we need solutions that clean up our bustling cities and bring reliable electricity to remote areas.
Agriculture & Rural Development
Programs to help farmers invest in crops that pay off in the long-term. Outreach and training in new best practices in organic fertilizers. Connecting rural farmers with more lucrative national or global markets. There is India, and then there is Bharat. And the gap between them keeps widening. How can we increase opportunities and living standards in rural India? From water management systems to storage innovations, we need to tackle the obstacles to rural development.
Social entrepreneurship is about combining business insight and social responsibility to positively impact lives. We need to strengthen India's social fabric, from health and education to culture and sports. How? By promoting youth athletic teams and promoting the importance of exercise. Establishing community theaters and emphasizing the arts. Setting up mobile health clinics, afterschool support centers, and much, much more.
