About this event

These Entrepreneur’s Oxygen Chamber & Air Purifiers Are Out To Save 46.8 Million Dilliwallahs. 

Everyone in the world today is aware of the significantly dangerous air Delhi citizens are breathing today. With AQI levels over 1000, one day of breathing Delhi’s air is equivalent to smoking 50 cigarettes on that same day! Visibility is at an all-time low, and people wearing masks on the roads is a common sight. In this state of a health emergency for India’s capital, there is a lot of debate across channels as to what is the solution or permanent cure to this problem.

Annu Grover, the founder of Nurturing Green, has a unique answer for this and the answer is just as obvious – plants! And to that end, what Annu is creating is a series of oxygen chambers across stations of the busiest line of Delhi Metro, with the first one at HUDA City Centre, Gurgaon

Nurturing Green is the pioneer in India in promoting the Green concept of Gifting, Decor, Landscaping and other related Services. Starting from a very small idea to ‘Gift A Plant. Gift A Life' in place of monotonous gifts, now with more than 30 Stores in the top eight cities of the country and hundreds of corporate clients Nurturing Green has become the synonym of ‘Go Green’ in India.

Gifts are to be cherished and nurtured like relations. With the help of Nurturing Green, be part of the movement where you replace traditional gifts or bouquet of flowers with Gifting a Life, Gifting a Plant!.

They have specially crafted plants, which are not only beautiful and easy to maintain, but they also come in a handcrafted jute-pot increasing the intrinsic ecological appeal. This jute pot is a symbol of the humane aspect of our gifts as every plant you gift contributes to the welfare of the rural women who make these pots.

They have received numerous accolades like The Hindustan Times Bright young Climate Leader
Awards, the most promising idea in the ET-Power of Ideas 2010, among others. Their portfolio of plants
includes rare-to-find Bonsai’s, stress-buster plants, interior décor plants, zodiac plants etc.

Another rockstar entrepreneur we have on 20th of December is Vibhor Jain, the Chief Executive Officer at Atlanta Healthcare, India's leading air quality management company. 

Vibhor brings with him over 15 years of experience in consulting firms like Arthur Andersen and EY LLP before taking on as the CEO of Atlanta Healthcare. 

Started way back in 2010 when air pollution was the last topic in anyone’s mind, Vibhor has taken Atlanta Healthcare from a small corner shop venture to being one of India’s leading air quality management company giving the big boys in consumer durables industry a force to reckon with. He over the years has established a niche company focussing only on issues around air quality (from monitoring to improvement) which has become the unique selling proposition of the brand. 

Working on the sustainability agenda Vibhor is currently also working with global Bicycle sharing company Mobike to launch their operations in India which is a logical extension towards solving the problem of air pollution with clear focus on non-motorised and greener mode of commuting

A technocrat to the core, prior to Atlanta Healthcare, Vibhor was the founding Member of the Government & Public Sector consulting team of EY focusing on large transformation projects in the taxation, National ID, financial inclusion and Health domains. In his last role at EY, Vibhor was an Executive Director leading the National ID, Financial Inclusion and Health Technology advisory practice for EY.
