Startup Grind joins forces with Kerala Startup Mission during the time of #Corona.

About this event

Difficult times have dawned upon businesses all around the world, but we’re here to make sure yours is up and running. Startup Grind joins forces with Kerala Startup Mission during the time of #Corona. Tune in to our Fireside chat with Lakshmi Menon.

A designer by profession, Lakshmi Menon runs the organisation ‘Pure Living’ in Cochin.

It is dedicated to finding sustainable livelihood solutions and also in propagating awareness in society about

the importance of green living. Engaging and thus empowering the underprivileged is the DNA of the organisation.

The ideas are really simple and workable with great impact.

Lakshmi conceptualised Ammommathiri / Wicksdom, a project designed to provide livelihood for the

underprivileged elderly through crowdsourcing. Women living in old age homes and orphanages across the state make Wicks commonly used for lighting lamps, ensuring them a livelihood and purposeful engagement with dignity.
