About this event

India is known for its frugal innovation techniques and solutions, that have long supported in reducing the negative impact of the country’s pressing problems. Also famously termed as “JUGAAD”, frugal innovation has been experienced in various forms and across several states, whose demography and geography are immensely diverse. While the startup ecosystem has thrived in tier-1 cities, it is about time its potential is harnessed in tier-2 and below regions. And to do so it needs to have the element of frugal innovation to penetrate in such regions.

Education has been one of India’s long standing problems, due its to its sheer population size and poor quality K-12 system. While people are able to pick up their mother tongue and other local languages spoken among peers, there is still a huge struggle in gaining access to good quality training and education services for learning English and other prominent languages. In the age of digital economy, access to the internet and ICT devices (mainly smartphones) has ensured that people realise the power of technology to change their lives. However, they also soon realise that by not being well-versed in global languages would make them left behind in this highly competitive world.

So how does one tie-up frugal innovation with technology to solve consumer issues? Are there any techniques and approaches to identify this fusion? How does a diverse state like Rajasthan ensure that each of its citizens have access to such frugally developed solutions to control and reduce the gap? How can current entrepreneurs and new-age startups combine forces to work collaboratively in designing scalable and sustainable frugal innovations for the world? What does it take to make a successful JUGAAD?
