India India
Our Aim
The true glory of India has been made obvious by the " the value for money” of the Mangalyaan at mere cost of $73 billion and launched within a span of one year and three months of its inception. Known to a few, it was an Indian boy of 14 who invented email. No one can disregard that India taught the world to count, that first battery, the first flying machines running with mercury powered engines were India's contribution to the world.

Quoting the Chairman, of the Indian Space Research Organization, “the most important (benefit of the mars mission) could well be to fire the imagination of young minds of this country, getting them to dream about the possibilities for tomorrow”. It is this imagination, this fire that we are trying to air, through the contest.

The Global India Entrepreneurs 2014 Contest is a step forward towards repositioning India as a player in the world economic scene, and reintroducing her great heritage to her own youth.

The Entrepreneurship with a Cause is the central theme of the program, where the young, potent Indian minds are given support to furnish their ideas, and realize ecologically sensitive, economically viable and socially empowering concepts

GIE in History and Today
According to economic historian Angus Maddison in his book The World Economy: A Millennial Perspective, India was the richest country in the world and had the world's largest economy during 0 BCE and 1000 BCE. British economist, Angus Maddison argues that India's share of the world income went from 27% in 1700 (compared to Europe's share of 23%) to 3% in 1950.

Not ancient but even modern-medieval India has been noted for her expansive trade relations and vast commerce. Every kind of produce known to the man of brain and strength has a parallel in the Indian history. Thanks to its ingenious labor and entrepreneurship skills, Until 18th century, India was known for her thriving markets and genius of craftsmanship in every field of the life of the civilized world.

Besides India's philosophical and cultural legacy, its scientific heritage needs to be understood in order to give its people a realistic sense of their place in the world.

The need to revive self esteem and pride in our roots will only help to bring excellence, sovereignty and the drive to establishing successful Indian entrepreneurship in fields of Economy, Arts & Sciences.

Success Stories


Its not just JUGAAD!

India's culture of jugaad, or frugal innovation, has helped produce a wide range of sustainable breakthroughs.

These innovations provide high quality goods or services – as good as, or better than, existing alternatives – at a low cost and a small environmental footprint.

Low cost doesn't mean low tech. On the contrary, frugal innovation can use highly sophisticated technology. Lakshminarayan Kannan, Founder of Vortex Engineering, says, "To do anything in rural India it has to be cost-effective, robust, reliable and energy-efficient", he adds. "It's like sending something to Mars. You can't send an engineer up there to fix it. The only difference is that you don't have budget constraints in space technology!”

The cash machine (ATM) which Kannan and his colleagues in Chennai developed is remarkable. With the lowest power consumption in the world – up to 90% less than conventional alternatives – it can run on solar power. Moreover it costs just one-third of conventional ATMs, despite having sophisticated inbuilt fingerprint scanning which allows even illiterate farmers to access the formal banking system. It holds out the prospect of bringing basic banking services within reach of rural India, most of which is far from the electricity grid. It is already being taken up by the State Bank of India and others, and Kannan hopes to see 3,000 installed by the end of 2013. More with Less, for More and More People

Regardless, many of the tools and techniques used to reduce cost and increase access also have positive environmental benefits. For example, Gyanesh Pandey wanted to bring electricity to rural Bihar despite the conviction of the Government that some areas were too remote to reach. Pandey's Husk Power Systems developed local plants that generate electricity via a biomass gasifier, using rice husks as principal fuel

A number of conditions have come together to make India conducive to frugal innovation. Above all, perhaps, is a culture of jugaad: a Hindi word that roughly translates as 'overcoming harsh constraints by improvising an effective solution using limited resources'. From connecting a diesel engine onto a cart to create a truck, to powering complex irrigation systems by motorbike, there are examples all over the country.

Sometimes a mix of low and high tech can achieve remarkable results. In the high valleys of Ladakh, farmers can grow fresh vegetables through the freezing winters thanks to an innovative greenhouse designed by local NGOs in partnership with the French organisation GERES. The Ashden Award-winning greenhouses use traditional earth and straw insulation coupled with a specially developed UV-resistant heavy duty polythene.

Dr R A Mashelkar, one of India's leading scientists and a board member of the Tata Group, is an enthusiastic advocate of frugal innovation. "It is fundamentally about doing more with less, for more and more people. Not only people excluded today, but also people likely to be excluded in future.”
