OUR PROJECT THEMES

CIRCULAR ECONOMY

With our core focus on universally accepted Sustainable Development Goals, we research development models inspired by Circular Economic processes. We firmly believe that long-term sustainability and development needs can be realized through zero-dependence on virgin resources and continuous recycling of existing resources to create greater value

SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Challenge of advancing automation has to be balanced by creation of new entrepreneurial opportunities, particularly at the bottom of the pyramid. We emphasize social entrepreneurship as a means to creating such alternative employment generating micro-ventures

DECENTRALIZATION

Traditional models of development are based on efficiencies of scale through centralization. We explore the realms of small innovations in process and design, uniquely suited to local needs in our projects.
