Sristi, as knowledge partners of IMC, is making a joint call for IMC Inclusive Innovation Awards 2017 for GENZ-Special Award for the Young Innovator Category (Age group 13 – 23 years).
2017 is the fourth cycle of the Award. The first three cycles evinced, high level of interest and participation from grassroot innovators across the country.
The aim of the Awards is to identify and support work of entrepreneurs/ innovators, who are in the process of building enterprises that focus on products or services which are of high quality and yet, affordable and accessible to all sections of the society, especially those leading to growth and development of the population at the base of the economic pyramid, while ensuring commercial viability of the venture.
Simply put, inclusive innovation means “more from less for more and more people” from excluded regions, sectors, social groups, pursuing traditonal skills, affected by seasonal climatic extremes, and under-served by less sensitive structures of governance. Such innovations meet the hitherto unmet needs of socially disadvantaged communities.
The information for the same is available on the Website
