International Workshop on Frugal Innovation – JUGAAD
April 5, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pmRs14500
International Workshop on Frugal Innovation – Jugaad – is an initiative of Innovators.me, an initiative to bring an Intellectual Revolution.
Over 3 billion people around the world live outside the formal economy and face significant unmet needs in core areas such as health, education, energy, food, and financial services. Many of these people live in India. For years, this large population was either the target of aid or came under the purview of governments. More recently, however, private sectors firms, both large and small, have begun to see the bottom of the pyramid as a market opportunity and have begun to design market-based solutions to meet unmet needs.
In this workshop, Prof. Prabhu will discuss how the phenomenon of frugal innovation—the creation of faster, better and cheaper solutions that employ minimal resources—holds the key to driving growth, employing more people creatively, and solving the big problems of poverty and inequality. Throughout the talk, he will highlight examples of frugal innovation by entrepreneurs, emerging market firms, multinationals, NGOs and governments. He will end with implications of frugal innovation for large and small firms and governments alike.
The event will see Mr. Arun Jaitley (Hon. Minister of Finance, Govt. of India), Mr. Piyush Goyal (Hon. Minister of Power, Government of India), Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan (Hon. Minister of State for PNG, Government of India) and Mr. Suresh Prabhu (Hon. Minister for Railways, Government of India) as the Chief Guests.
The event can be attended online as well – Full Workshop Live Webcast with E-certificate for Rs. 399/-
